CPD Laboratory Mission:

Our research group is focused on understanding the factors that are associated with functioning in everyday life for those with mental disorders and to develop interventions that target these factors so that quality of life can be improved. A primary focus of our work is to examine how cognitive functioning is associated with outcomes such as work, home life, socializing, recreation, and quality of life. In addition to studying the mechanisms of cognitive impairment, we develop treatment interventions to help those with mental illness improve their cognitive abilities, develop new strategies for deploying cognitive skills in daily life, and improve their confidence to approach and sustain engagement with cognitively complex tasks.
