PLAN and Cognitive Enhancement Therapy
Stacy A. Martz, Ph.D., Executive Director of PLAN of Southwest Ohio
Stacy A. Martz, Ph.D., has been the Executive Director of PLAN of Southwest Ohio since 1999. She is also a Certified Cognitive Enhancement Therapy (CET) Coach and Trainer. She previously worked in disability related fields after obtaining degrees in psychology and special education.
Cognitive Enhancement Therapy (CET) focuses on building neurocognitive skills and stamina and social cognitive skills and awareness, the whole of which addresses the negative symptoms of serious mental illnesses in ways that medication can’t. CET is “Physical therapy for the brain”.
PLAN’s mission is to provide peace of mind to families worried about loved ones with disabilities by providing individualized, quality services to people who need personalized care when the family can no longer help provide it. PLAN helps families develop long-term care plans, works with families to find ways to support that care plan financially, and carries out the care plan now and for a lifetime as a family surrogate.
