Brief Summary:

Patients with schizophrenia , who visit frenquently day-care or day-care activities clinics, often experience difficulties of daily living and cognitive deficits. Living independently is a key for recovery. Cognitive remediation is a therapy which reduces deficit and improves daily living. Nowadays no program exists targeting neurocognitive functions in virtual reality which could mimic everyday life in a virtual town.

Hypotheses :

  • Persons with schizophrenia experience difficulties in daily living and disabilities to plan in everyday life. PLANI-REV program, a serious game with a navigation in a virtual town, in a 15 weekly group sessions could reduce these difficulties compared to the initial assessment. This improvement could be maintained 6 months after the end of the program.
  • PLANI-REV could also improve prospective memory, attention, working memory, and visuospatial organization.
  • PLANI-REV could induce a clinical improvement, as well as better perception of self-efficiency, self esteem, quality of life, and conversation skills.
