Why have more individuals with chronic mental health disabilities not recovered more completely? We need to rethink the problem and solution; move the treatment paradigm from treatment as usual, i.e. maintenance style of non-treatment to Cognitive Remediation, an active treatment focusing on remediating the person’s disabilities while increasing their strengths.
CET, a SAMHSA recognized Evidence Based Practice form of cognitive remediation, has been successfully disseminated to 41 sites in 12 states. The talk will demonstrate how over 48 once-a-week sessions of computer exercises, social cognition groups and individual coaching, clients learn how to be socially wise and vocationally effective.
