The Cognitive Remediation therapy for Bipolar (CRiB) feasibility trial
We are conducting a feasibility trial to compare the effects of a computerised, cognitive remediation therapy (CRT) for people with bipolar disorder.
We will be recruiting 60 people who have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and are not currently experiencing symptoms, and allocating participants to either simply continue receiving treatment as usual, or to continue with normal treatment and undertake a 12-week CRT therapy. We will measure many factors - to do with thinking abilities, functioning, symptoms and other information about people - both before and after the therapy period, as well as 12-weeks after treatment finishes.
Because CRT has been demonstrated as helpful and enjoyable for people with diagnoses of schizophrenia, eating disorders and borderline personality disorder, we hope that this therapy may also be beneficial for this group of people.
