In this video from a recent CBT workshop at the Beck Institute, Dr. Aaron Beck discusses neurocognitive change among schizophrenic patients who receive CBT treatment. Dr. Beck references a study in which a sample of highly regressed patients with schizophrenia received between six and eighteen months of Cognitive Therapy.

He then provides a hypothesis for this outcome.
