This study reviews the main rehabilitation programs that have been developed to improve
cognitive functioning in patients diagnosed with schizophrenia: it describes their
main components and procedures and highlights the most relevant outcomes of each one.
Additionally, it highlights which lead to subsequent improvement in social functioning.
Cognitive rehabilitation is now being commonly included in treatment of schizophrenic
patients with cognitive impairment or cognitive deficit. Hence, it is very important to
have empirical data on the efficacy of these programs, data which is not always readily
available in current literature.
