This conference is designed for Mental Health Professionals involved in the research and treatment of people with psychiatric conditions who have cognitive deficits. We at Columbia University Medical Center are determined to continue our commitment to understand the causes of mental illness, and to find a cure for them. This course is designed to present information on the understanding and treatment of the cognitive deficits that commonly occur in many psychiatric conditions.
Course participants will acquire knowledge about different approaches to treating cognitive deficits, how cognitive deficits can impact everyday functioning, the factors that influence a positive response to cognitive remediation, how medications affect cognition, and how to provide cognitive remediation to different psychiatric populations. Participants will be able to attend all plenary presentations and to choose among a research symposium and several small group workshops led by the faculty members. Each workshop will focus on a specific topic in greater depth and allow for questions and discussion.
