Join the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences for a talk titled “Implementing and Adapting Cognitive Enhancement Therapy for Schizophrenia and Related Conditions” with Shaun M. Eack, a leading national scholar on severe mental illness. This talk will be held Friday, Dec. 1, from noon to 1 p.m. in person in Mandel Center, Room 108, and virtually via Zoom.
Eack has generated over $20 million dollars in extramural funding and published more than 150 peer-reviewed articles. This presentation will review evidence surrounding the use of cognitive enhancement therapy (CET) to promote recovery from schizophrenia, and adaptations of the approach for adults with autism, and related conditions. Eack will highlight neuroscience studies about the impact of CET on the brain and its neural mechanisms of action, and conclude with future directions to support greater community CET intervention implementation.
Refreshments and light appetizers will be provided for all in-person attendees.
