Action Based Cognitive Remediation (ABCR) training workshop

Open to the Public
Prof. Chris Bowie
Cognitive Remediation

Our initial Action Based Cognitive Remediation (ABCR) training workshop with Prof. Chris Bowie in the Spring had to be delayed due to COVID. However, we are pleased to announce that we are now able to offer the workshop online. To minimize Zoom fatigue and increase learning, the format of the workshop has been updated. Rather than being a 3 day workshop, we will be doing it over four Fridays in October in 3 hour chunks (from 11 am to 2pm). Participants can bring a brown bag lunch to eat during the webinar. 
The Zoom sessions will consist of didactics, and we will have breakout rooms to practice 'mini-groups'. We will also have accounts of the CRT program set up for all the participants, so you can try out the exercises between sessions. 
We also recognize that there may be some sessions that you may be unable to attend. We will therefore also be recording the sessions, and registered participants can also access the recorded sessions off-line. However, if you are able to attend live, it would allow you to ask questions and participate in the interactive exercises. Following completion of the workshop, we plan to set up a community of practice, to provide ongoing consultation and support as you set up and starting running your groups. 

Time: 11 am to 2 pm Pacific Time
Dates: Oct 2nd, 16th, 23rd and 30th, 2020

Instructor: Prof. Chris Bowie
