Metacognition: cognitively Active collaborate Learning Self Help Programs

The goal of Persian Institute for Metacognition is putting science of cognition and metacognition into practice

The goal of this work is twofold. First, through humorous examples and exercises, individuals with psychological disorders  gain insight into unhelpful cognitive distortions . Second, they improve their metacognitive processes (“thinking about thinking”).

Flavell defined metacognition as knowledge about cognition and control of cognition. Metacognition also involves thinking about one’s own thinking processes and applying metacognitive strategies to regulate the mental processes involved. Recent interest in this area has spurred many investigations which use introspection or behavioral changes when text or purpose are controlled as indicators of knowledge or control of cognitive processes.

Symia Comprehensive Center for Psychology (SCCP) with help of scientists from different disciplines created the Persian institute for metacognition  and invite interested people to develop a network of scientists and clinicians who are able to deliver effective intervention to psychiatric patients .
