Objective: We conducted a randomized controlled trial (RCT) to determine whether a highly tailored multidisciplinary counseling intervention for minor to moderate injured workers improve different aspects of well-being. Exploratory analyses of coping styles and optimism as moderators of treatment efficacy were performed. Methods: Hundred-and-ninety-two injured workers (71.9% male; Mage = 50), who showed a high-risk profile for a complicated recovery process, were randomly assigned to the work- and health-related tailored psychological intervention (IG) or to the conventional-case-management-only-condition (TAU). Primary outcome variables concerned psychological well-being (life satisfaction and negative feelings) and job satisfaction. Secondary outcome variables were family-related- and health-related satisfaction. Assessments were conducted at 4 to 6 months (baseline), 12 months and 18 months post-injury. We analysed the data using the intention to treat principle in a multilevel framework. Results: For negative feelings the between-group difference in change from baseline to 18months post-injury was significant (d = .74). Differential treatment effects were present, as participants low in social diversion (d = .26), high in emotion-oriented coping (d = .64), and low in optimism (d = .48) benefited from the intervention to a greater extent. Conclusion: Our results suggest that a tailored counseling intervention has a modest effect on negative feelings for minor to moderate injured workers. Coping abilities and dispositional optimism are associated with benefits from the intervention. We conclude that a multidisciplinary tailored counseling intervention combined with collaborative care can support the adaptation to an accidental injury, but the workers ́ individual resources should be considered.
