Special Issue of the Psychiatric Rehabilitation Journal on Cognitive Remediation

The papers comprising this special issue make important contributions to the cognitive remediation field by testing the efficacy of cognitive programs on unique symptom targets of serious mental illness, evaluating novel cognitive program enhancements, demonstrating the feasibility and promise of incorporating cognitive programs into everyday practice, and engaging new populations into cognitive programs. Together, these papers show that cognitive remediation is an important and increasingly common component of comprehensive psychiatric rehabilitation programs that can increase the effectiveness of these programs at helping participants make progress toward and achieve their personal goals.
