This study analyses the impact of the second IPT subprogramme (Roder, Brenner, Hodel & Kienzle, 1996) in chronic schizophrenic patients. The programme intends to improve their ability to perceive and to interpret social situations. The sample was formed by 20 participants, divided into two groups: 11 in the therapy group and 9 in the control group. Social and clinical measures have been used, as well as an instrument developed for the assessment of Social Perception, as it is defined in the IPT. This instrument has been sensitive to changes in the pre-treatment and post-treatment measures, showing that schizophrenics patients have improved their ability to perceive and to interpret reality in a more adequate way.

Key words:
