Despite advances in psychopharmacology, schizophrenia remains a severely disabling illness. It is now appreciated that cognitive impairment mediates the functional disability associated with the disorder. Cognitive remediation, which is defined as ‘a behavioural training based intervention that aims to improve cognitive processes (attention, memory, executive functioning, social cognition or meta cognition) with the goal of durability and generalization’ is a therapeutic approach that improves cognition and when combined with other rehabilitation strategies improves real-world functioning (Wykes et al., 2011).
