Therapy-Comparison within a Rehabilitation Framework
In Salzburg/Austria, restructuring of wards was undertaken on a large scale in the course of the general reform of psychiatric in-patient treatment. Among other things, part of the closed ward for the chronically ill was to be closed, and the patients were to be transferred to an open home on hospital grounds in order to meet the requirements of late rehabilitation (Gastager, 1969). The patients chosen were to be prepared for their new living arrangements with the aid of psychological training-programs, so that optimal minimization of the risks involved could be achieved, or better, greatest possible success of the training programs would mean maximum subjective well-being on the part of the patients as well as their successful mastering of the new requirements of the home.
