Discover. Educate. Care. Lead.
Learn about Cognitive Health in Psychological Disorders
The 23rd annual Cognitive Remediation in Psychiatry conference, originally planned for June 5, 2020, has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to 2021 when another stellar group of researchers, clinicians, and administrators from all over the world will discuss topics germane to the cognitive and social recovery of people with mental illness.
Sponsored by Columbia University, Alliance for the Study of Cognitive Disorders, New York State Office of Mental Health and Jewish Board of Family and Children's Services.
Conference History & Scope
Cognitive Remediation in Psychiatry was started in 1998 in order to provide a forum for people interested in treating cognitive disorders, to present their research and clinical initiatives. Our goal is the education of mental health professionals about different approaches to treating cognitive deficits, how cognitive deficits can impact everyday functioning, the factors that influence a positive response to cognitive remediation, and how to provide cognitive remediation to different psychiatric populations. We welcome you to our family of researchers, clinicians, policymakers and advocates, and hope that through participating you will join the mission of addressing cognitive health in people affected by mental illness.
