The Dynamic Interactional Model in Schizophrenia

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter describes the adaptation of the DIM for people diagnosed with schizophrenia. A comprehensive review of the literature on cognitive/metacognitive disabilities in schizophrenia is presented, followed by a conceptual model and proposal for implementing the DIM in occupational therapy. A case study is provided to demonstrate the potential utility of this model. Finally, evidence-based research supporting the model in occupational therapy is described. An illustrative study using virtual reality (VR) to evaluate instrumental activities of daily living (lADLs) and executive function (EF) with people with schizophrenia is included.
