The Cognitive Remediation Therapy (CRT) programme taught on this course is a psychological therapy which aims to improve thinking skills, such as concentration, memory and problem-solving, in people with a diagnosis of schizophrenia with the ultimate aim improving functioning levels. Research trials of CRT showed that this therapy made significantly greater improvements in memory and flexible thinking than people who received an alternative therapy based on occupational therapy activities or treatment-as-usual. CRT also had a beneficial impact on self-esteem and thinking skills improvements were associated with improved functioning in social situations and symptoms (Wykes et al, 2003, 2007, 20112012; Reeder et al, 2004, 2006).

This course will introduce a computer based software called CIRCuiTS and a paper and pencil method alongside a model of CRT implementation based on metacognitive skills (Cella et al, 2015).

Topics to be covered include:

(a) CRT research and evidence
(b) the theoretical background to CRT
(c) a model for targeting metacognitive thinking skills and how they may relate to everyday living skills
(d) the core skills needed to administer CRT
(e) assessment and formulation
(f) clinical issues in delivering CRT and therapist competences
(g) service-related issues (e.g. the practicalities of therapy and how it may be accommodated within services).
