Pjanic, Irena; Hoffmann-Richter, Ulrike; Schade, Volker; Znoj, Hansjörg (27 June 2014). Psychological intervention in injured individuals (Unpublished). In: 45th International Annual Meeting of the Society for Psychotherapy Research (SPR). Copenhagen, Denmark. 25.06.-28.06.2014.

Aim: Injured individuals face a high risk for the development of psychological symptoms such as depression or anxiety, which influences early return to work after an accident. So far, it is unclear to which extent early psychological interventions can improve the ability to return to work. The aim of the study was to investigate whether an improvement of the treatment‐triage influences early return to work and well being in injured individuals. Method: The study sample consists of injured individuals with different mental health-related or work-related disabilities after an accident. Participants are included eight weeks after an accident. Participants are randomly assigned to the intervention or to the control group. The intervention is an individualized psychotherapy consisting of cognitive‐behavioral therapy and work related topics in an individual setting. Wellbeing and work related factors are assessed at baseline and after six months. Result: The recruitment is still ongoing. The preliminary results of this randomized controlled study will be presented at the conference. Discussion: An individualized psychotherapy might have the potential to improve the rehabilitation process in injured individuals and improve the ability to return to work.
