Test iPad App that Seeks to Treat Schizophrenia


by member 107

DESCRIPTION

• Posit Science is looking for people interested in participating in a remote study 
• Participants must use iOS devices (provided iPads, if needed) for the duration of the study in order to complete the intervention anytime, and anywhere they choose 
• This intervention includes a neuroscience-informed computerized cognitive training, virtual group therapy sessions and social networking.

My name is Bruno and I am the principal investigator for the Posit Science CLIMB Study. I specialize in schizophrenia research and I'm posting to see if anyone on here would be interested in participating in a research study entitled "Creating Live Interactions to Mitigate Barriers (CLIMB): A Mobile Intervention to Improve Social Functioning in People with Schizophrenia." This study is interested in how computerized training, group therapy and social networking may help people with schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder lessen their symptoms. Our study offers an innovative approach in that participants can access the intervention from the convenience of their own home using their personal iOS mobile device (we will provide iPads for those who do not own their own device) instead of having to regularly travel to the study site.
