Title - Understanding Social Dysfunction in Schizophrenia: Where are we and where are we going?
Speaker - Amy Pinkham, PhD
Schizophrenia is a severe mental illness that is characterized by diverse symptoms and significant difficulties in social functioning. For decades, researchers have sought to identify and understand the factors that contribute to social dysfunction, and this talk will focus on two factors that appear to be critically important: social cognition and introspective accuracy. Research addressing these factors will be discussed, with an emphasis on the most recent, as well as ongoing, work.
