The 23rd annual Cognitive Remediation in Psychiatry conference will take place virtually on June 4, 2021. We look forward to learning from a stellar group of researchers, clinicians and administrators who 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, and New York State Office of Mental Health.
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.
