Schizophrenia Research

One of the Aaron T. Beck Psychopathology Research Center’s main research foci is recovery-oriented cognitive therapy (CT-R) for individuals with persistent schizophrenia. As a fusion of the recovery movement’s spirit with cognitive therapy’s evidence base and know-how, CT-R is a collaborative treatment approach that prioritizes attainment of personally-set goals, removal of roadblocks, and engagement of individuals in their own psychiatric rehabilitation. Center efforts to advance recovery-oriented care for individuals with schizophrenia fall into three categories: basic research elucidating treatment targets, the development and validation of CT-R treatment protocols, and dissemination and implementation of CT-R continuity of care programing.
