Currently working on the research project Cognitive remediation of executive dysfunction: Goal Management Training for patients with schizophrenia or high risk for schizophrenia. Many patients with schizophrenia also have cognitive impairments, executive functions being particularly affected. Executive dysfunction is an important predictor of functional outcomes. The current study evaluates whether Goal Management Training (GMT) is an effective treatment.
