It is widely accepted that patients with schizophrenia show disturbances in their cognitive function. Recently, due to the increase of the possibilities of therapeutic intervention for cognitive deficits, cognitive rehabilitation is being tried by clinicians in the management of schizophrenia. Our study has considered several questions that have been raised in relation to cognitive rehabilitation. 1) What is cognitive rehabilitation? ; 2) What are its strategies? ; 3) What strategy of cognitive rehabilitation is appropriate to several cognitive deficits? ; 4) What kind of cognitive rehabilitation methods are possible according to the information processing model for schizophrenia? ; 5) What is its clinical considerations? ; 6) On what theoretical basis does the critical view of cognitive rehabilitation have its roots? ; 7) Which direction should it follow? Despite its limitation, there are still great possibilities for the future of cognitive rehabilitation, and we feel that it should be tried for patients with schizophrenia in this country.
