Abstract

The prognostic value of psychopathological symptoms for the vocational and social reintegration of mental ill persons after in-patient treatment in a psychiatric hospital is disputed in literature. Huber, Gross, Schüttler (1979), Paykel et al. (1978), Weisman et al. (1978), or the WHO-study of schizophrenia (1979) attribute a prognostic value for the outcome of psychiatric diseases to the psychopathological symptoms, whereas Ellsworth and Clayton (1959) or Ciompi et al. (1978, 1979) rather question this.
