This paper purposes (1) to describe the cognitive rehabilitation procedures using virtual reality; (2) to characterize a cognitive and social skills development program (group intervention), based in Brenner’s Integrated Psychological Therapy; and (3) to report the initial impacts of these methodologies application in schizophrenic and long term unemployed persons integrated in a personal development program. This kind of Competencies Development Programs aim to promote people’s global functioning and their quality of life, which depend, in great measure, on the individuals learning and generalization capabilities, and consequently, on their cognitive skills.
