Vocational rehabilitation outcome in psychiatrically and mentally handicapped clients (1969/70--1977)

, : Vocational rehabilitation outcome in psychiatrically and mentally handicapped clients (1969/70--1977). Die Rehabilitation 17(3): 149-155

Based on detailed statistical data--104 patients were studied--the article points out a success rate of 68% in connection with the vocational resettlement of psychiatric clients. The criteria used to determine success were at the time of discharge permanent employment in workshops for the disabled, competitive employment or part-time jobs. A follow-up study carried out about seven years later revealed a 39% success rate as regards the clients' stability in employment. These statistics demonstrate that of 37% rehabilitees who had formerly committed a criminal offence most probably only one percent was recidivious. Furthermore, the article reports on the methods considered to be causative factors for the therapeutic success: Adequate medicinal treatment, as well as an essential pre-requisite for rehabilitation, the creation of a therapeutic milieu. Also, particularly important for a lasting success is the continuing follow-up for which appropriate facilities, especially living accommodation, community living and homes must be provided.
