The therapeutic results of an experimental neuropsychological rehabilitation program, Function-Oriented Guidance (FOG), for patients with mild cognitive disturbances were examined and compared with a regular Function Training (FT) program. FOG is based on thorough evaluation of neuropsychological test results, psychoeducation, and individual counseling. Within the FOG group, but not the FT group, patients' worries decreased and their level of knowledge increased. The results imply that psychoeducation may be of therapeutic value in patients with cognitive disturbances because it improves the way they cope with their handicaps. Contrary to expectations, between-group analyses showed few differences between the programs. Nevertheless, it can be concluded that psychoeducation for cognitively disturbed patients can contribute to improving their quality of life. However, further research with more patients is necessary.
