“This book shows how we can enhance natural recovery by boosting cognitive functions. Cognitive impairment precedes onset of psychiatric illness and is a primary cause of functional impairments. Recovery is learning—and this is especially true in the workplace. This book should be read by all clinicians, rehabilitation specialists, and others who advocate for and support people with mental illness. The authors offer the research background, methods, and specific techniques of cognitive training and cognitive management that lead to success at work. Complete with materials for implementation, this book has everything needed to start using TSW. It is a guide for better learning, greater productivity, and a more fulfilling life for people in recovery.”

—Morris D. Bell, PhD, Department of Psychiatry (Emeritus), Yale University School of Medicine; Senior Research Career Scientist, VA Rehabilitation Research and Development Service


“This book brings TSW—an innovative program to help individuals struggling with the challenges of mental illness—to life. It is extraordinary for many reasons. The book is accessible, clearly written, and replete with numerous tools and examples. Most of all, it describes a program that enables individuals disadvantaged by mental illness and cognitive difficulties to meet their life goals of working.”

—Lisa Dixon, MD, MPH, Edna L. Edison Professor of Psychiatry, Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons


“This book is important for health professionals who are interested in rehabilitation and recovery—and for their clients with mental health problems who really want to return to some form of work. The authors show how cognitive difficulties affect work, and, importantly, they describe how we can improve both work prospects and job functioning through enhancing cognitive processing. They also describe ways that therapeutic or coaching support can boost the effects of work rehabilitation services. Describing the TSW program in detail, the book is informative for clinicians at all levels of experience.”
