This research investigates the benefits of productive activity and cognitive rehabilitation for patients with schizophrenia. Key questions are:
- does cognitive rehabilitation plus work activity produce better outcomes than work activity alone?
- Is cognitive rehabilitation more helpful for individuals with moderate or greater cognitive impairment than for individuals without such impairment?
- Does cognitive rehabilitation reduce the dropout rate and increase participation in work activity for cognitively impaired subjects?
- What features of cognitive rehabilitation are most important for clinical and rehabilitation outcomes?
