Despite controversy surrounding the effectiveness of working memory training, Cogmed Working Memory Training (CWMT, Pearson) remains a popular choice of intervention. We surveyed 100 CWMT practitioners from Australia, U.S.A., the Netherlands, and the U.K. to find out how CWMT is used, who with, and what outcomes are measured. Practitioners reported that CWMT was easy-to-use and a valuable use of clinical resources. Findings are discussed in relation to current research and recommendations for practice are made.
This project was supported by generous grants from the Henry Smith Charity and Action Medical Research.
