Psychosocial Interventions for Psychosis: Cognitive Remediation and Metacognitive Training
Presenter: Mahesh Menon, PhD
Schizophrenia is characterized by a range of difficulties, including symptoms such as delusions, as well as cognitive difficulties- which result in impairments in daily life functioning. In this talk, we examine some of the specific cognitive deficits seen in schizophrenia, as well as specific cognitive biases associated with delusions. We then focus on two interventions (cognitive remediation training and metacognitive training) which have been found to improve these deficits, as well as helping with functional improvement.
1. Understand cognitive factors associated with impairments in schizophrenia
2. Understand interventions aimed at improving cognitive functioning in schizophrenia
3. Understand interventions targetted towards specific symptoms, like delusions, in schizophrenia
Dr. Mahesh Menon did his PhD in Psychology at the University of Cambridge, UK, and then a fellowship at the Centre for Addiction & Mental Health in Toront, where he was on faculty at the University of Toronto before moving to Vancouver. His research program is focussed on cognitive and neural processes associated with delusions, and his clinical interests are in psychotherapy for psychosis and severe mental illness. He works as a psychologist with the BC Psychosis Program and the Mood Disorders Inpatient Unit at the UBC Hospital, and is a Clinical Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at UBC. He has published over 40 peer reviewed papers and book chapers, and his research has been funded by CIHR, NARSAD, the MIND Foundation and the Ontario Mental Health Foundation.

The BC PSR Advanced Practice is pleased to offer a webinar that presents an overview of current and emerging research related to the treatment of psychosis. Schizophrenia is characterized by a range of difficulties, including symptoms such as delusions, as well as cognitive difficulties- which result in impairments in daily life functioning.
