Episode 39 | Behavioral Interventions for Mild Cognitive Impairment - With Dr. Glenn Smith

Episode Description:  Although clinical neuropsychological research tends to focus on assessment and differential diagnosis, a growing contingent of neuropsychologists are attempting to apply their knowledge of neurobiology and cognitive and emotional functioning to pursue interventional neuropsychology. To this end, we speak with Glenn Smith, Ph.D., ABPP-CN, about the cognitive remediation program he has developed to address cognitive and emotional changes associated with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and dementia, the Healthy Action to Benefit Independence of Thinking (HABIT) program. Dr. Smith discusses his view of clinical and research efforts to address MCI, as well as his experience in psychology leadership and supervision of both postdoctoral and predoctoral practicum students.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss mild cognitive impairment (MCI) as a diagnostic entity
  2. Compare the components of and evidence for the Healthy Action to Benefit Independence and Thinking (HABIT) and Physical Exercise and Cognitive Engagement Outcomes for Mild Neurocognitive Disorder (PEACEOFMND) interventions in MCI
  3. Utilize multicomponent interventions for MCI from the implementation science perspective
