Our therapeutic approach is Mete Cognitive which first appeared approximately 2 decades ago by Dr. Steffen Moritz and Dr. Todd Woodward .In 2005 Dr. Saied Malihi joined to the MCT international group and prepared Farsi versions of MCT packages. This approach is based on applying the principles of cognitive and neural sciences from basic research to intervention psychotherapy, but focuses in particular on problematic thinking styles.
MCT emerged to develop a program that would help patients understand the manifestation of cognitive biases in their lives, with the hope that this awareness might increase their insight and reduce their symtoms.
This program aims to transfer knowledge of cognitive biases obtained from basic research to people diagnosed with schizophrenia, epression , obsessive compulsive disorder , Borderline Personality and other psychiatric disorders and to provide corrective experiences to patients, with the hope that it will facilitate symptom reduction and act prophylactically against relapse.
Recently, we also developed an app to complement MCT. This app, which we initially called MCT and More, has been renamed COGITO (www.uke.de/cogito_app). Its goal is to improve adherence to and maintenance of treatment gains.
