[Who doesn't Benefit from Psychosomatic Rehabilitation?]
ABSTRACT The aim of this study was to examine how far treatment success in psychosomatic rehabilitation can be predicted by patients' characteristics, therapy motivation and disorder.Data of 307 patients with psychosomatic disease were included. External and self-evaluations were operationalized as criterion for success. Data were collected using the Brief Symptom Inventory (BSI), Patients' Questionnaire of Therapy Motivation (PAREMO-20) and Disorder Severity Score (BSS). Hierarchical linear regression analysis was used for data analysis.A sceptical attitude, low education and long time of incapacity for work prior to rehabilitation can predict a lower treatment success. High levels of readiness for change and 6-8 working hours daily seem to favourably impact coping with disease in the framework of inpatient psychosomatic rehabilitation.
