Study Summary

The purpose of the study is to evaluate the feasibility of implementing cognitive training with 40 patients living with schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder. The study aims to explore if cognitive training as an intervention can improve cognition, symptomology, social cognition, and psychosocial function which has been determined through literature to be impacted within this population. The results of this study will help shed light on utilizing additional resources to aid in decreasing relapse and continued hospitalizations.
