Abstract

A lot of progress has been made in the treatment of schizophrenia against hallucinations and delusions. However, Schizophrenia still remains a highly disabling disease causing tremendous deficits in social- and vocational functioning. Cognitive deficits are known since the early 90's as a further core feature of schizophrenia, and it has been shown that social- and vocational dysfunctions are closely related to neurocognitive deficits. Whether those findings bear a potential for therapeutic implications still needs to be shown. In this overview therapeutic interventions with respect to cognitive deficits and their effectiveness and their role for vocational rehabilitation will be summarized.
