Cognitive Enhancement Therapy (CET)

Cognitive Enhancement Therapy (CET)

 CET is a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Evidence-based program (EBP). It is an innovative program for individuals with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder and was designed to rehabilitate social cognitive and neurocognitive deficits through computer exercises and social cognitive groups. CET is for individuals in the recovery phase of their illness, who continue to struggle socially and/or vocationally. Intensive research has shown that CET increases mental stamina, information processing, and enhances social cognition, including perspective taking and social context appraisal.

NAMI Palm Beach County brought CET to Florida because of its proven ability to retrain the brain, improve processing speed and provide individuals living with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder with a better quality of life. NAMI PBC started its pilot CET group in April 2015. We now have a wait-list and are hoping to offer more CET groups in the near future. If you are interested in participating in the CET program, please call the office at 561-588-3477.
