OBJECTIVE Cognitive remediation therapy for schizophrenia was developed to treat cognitive problems that affect functioning, but the treatment effects may depend on the type of trial methodology adopted. The present meta-analysis will determine the effects of treatment and whether study method or potential moderators influence the estimates. METHOD(More)
Approaches to cognitive remediation have differed across studies. Most of the larger studies have concentrated on group treatments designed without the benefit of recent laboratory-based studies. The current study describes a randomized trial of an intensive cognitive remediation program involving individual daily sessions of 1 hour for up to 3 months. It(More)
BACKGROUND Guidance in the United States and United Kingdom has included cognitive behavior therapy for psychosis (CBTp) as a preferred therapy.

This paper describes the standard version of the MRC Social Performance Schedule, which covers 21 behaviour areas such as hygiene, initiating conversations, etc. and was designed to be used with long-stay populations, within a hospital or the community. Data on the schedule's consistency over raters, informants, time, and situation showed that the(More)
People with depression report frequent cognitive failures, but objective measures of cognition show mixed results. Some studies show impairment on effortful tasks. The relationship between subjective and objective cognitive failures was studied in 102 "depressed" or "nondepressed" UK servicemen, grouped by Beck Depression Inventory scores with a cutoff(More)
This article reviews progress in the development of effective cognitive remediation therapy (CRT) and its translational process. There is now enough evidence that cognitive difficulties experienced by people with schizophrenia can change and that the agenda for the next generation of studies is to increase these effects systematically through cognitive(More)
BACKGROUND Schizophrenia with an onset in adolescence is known to be associated with a poorer outcome and cognitive difficulties. These impairments have an impact on quality of life and represent treatment targets. Cognitive remediation therapy (CRT) attempts to improve cognitive deficits by teaching information processing strategies through guided mental(More)
BACKGROUND This paper investigates the durability of the effects of cognitive remediation therapy (CRT). In a randomised control trial, CRT was compared with a control therapy (intensive occupational therapy activities), matched for length of therapist contact. The main three cognitive outcomes, (i) number of categories achieved on the Wisconsin Card Sort(More)
