Psychosocial Factors in Successful Rehabilitation

  • U. Lowental
Part of the Medicolegal Library book series (MEDICOLEGAL, volume 3)


An important aspect of the successful rehabilitation of various bodily defects -apart from the technical aspects - is the subjective-individual parameter linked with the psychosocial dimension of illness or disability. One factor is the active/passive behavior pattern: Does the individual, whatever his sickness, try to cope by any means, hating the idea that he may need professional therapy? Or is his personality the dependent type, so that we welcomes all guidance and begs for detailed instructions? For optimal results, our therapeutic attitude should take this parameter into consideration.
