Cognitive and social cognitive interventions for people with schizophrenia are novel, emerging in a systematic manner only over the past 10 to 15 years. They are largely understudied to date. Results of controlled and frequently randomized and blinded trials of cognitive remediation have been both impressive in individual studies and remarkably robust in their effects across studies, despite widely varying strategic treatment approaches, control conditions, duration of interventions, selection of outcome measures, sample characteristics, and adjunctive treatments. Controlled trials of social cognitive therapies, while smaller in number, have shown considerable promise as well. Cognitive and social cognitive therapies thus represent an exciting new frontier in the study of psychosocial treatments for schizophrenia.
