This systematic review addresses 2 questions: 1) What is the quality of the development and recommendations of these BPGs? and 2) What are the areas of agreement and discrepancy amon...
Article
Full-text available
Background: Since a higher level of self-efficacy in common mental disorders is associated with earlier return-to-work (RTW), it is important to know if work related self-efficacy can be increased by occupational health care. The primary aim of this study was to evaluate whether an intervention to enhance guideline adherence of occupational physic...

The FIS measure has been shown to be predictive of treatment outcomes whereby therapists scoring high on the FIS tend to elicit better client treatment outcomes (i.e. symptom reduction) (Anderson, 2016). The FIS is therefore a promising instrument and likely to be useful for a wide variety of (mental) health care professionals. That is why the instrument is recently translated and re-filmed by the current authors into Dutch. Our aim was to develop clients from different interpersonal stances who represent both very challenging situations and less challenging situations. Before further research with the Dutch FIS clips is set up, we want to determine the validity and the reliability of the recorded Dutch FIS clips.
