Bridging groups are verbal discussion and skill-building groups that foster the transfer of cognitive improvement from the therapeutic setting to everyday life. In cognitive remediation, this process of generalization refers to the application of cognitive skills and compensatory strategies acquired in the sessions to situations outside of the group. Bridging exercises complement the computer-based learning activities and can be broadly categorized as metacognitive or skill building. Chapter 9 provides a framework for the structure and organization of bridging groups and describes how to engage group members in the learning process. Examples of bridging discussions and learning activities are provided.
