This exploratory study examines relations between socio-demographic, social, psychological, cognitive, variables and stressors, coping strategies and adaptation of individuals with schizophrenia. The study's design is correlational with two repeated measures (cross-sectional) with 153 subjects at a six-month interval. The variables of the model explain 49,3 % of adaptation at time 1, and 54,6 % of adaptation at time 2. Data show that five predictors are simultaneously significant at both times : work, social integration, long term memory, positive and negative symptoms. At time 2, variables of self-esteem and "changing the situation" are also significant.
