Take the Test!!

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM   ET
Credit Hours:  1  CEU(s)

Presenter:
  •  Ray Gonzalez, MSW, ACSW, LISW-S

Moderator(s):
  •  Sharon Dietsche, LICSW, LCSW-C, ACSW

Why have more individuals with chronic mental health disabilities not recovered more completely? We need to rethink the problem and solution; move the treatment paradigm from treatment as usual, i.e. maintenance style of non-treatment to Cognitive Remediation, an active treatment focusing on remediating the person’s disabilities while increasing their strengths.

CET, a SAMHSA recognized Evidence Based Practice form of cognitive remediation, has been successfully disseminated to 41 sites in 12 states. The talk will demonstrate how over 48 once-a-week sessions of computer exercises, social cognition groups and individual coaching, clients learn how to be socially wise and vocationally effective.
