Patterns of change in treated psychoneurotic patients

A five-year follow-up investigation of the systematic preparation of patients for psychotherapy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Evaluated the improvement and current mental status of 19 neurotic outpatients 5 yr. after participating in a psychotherapy study on the effects of role induction. It was found that differences between the experimental groups obtained immediately following treatment disappeared, and that all Ss exhibited significantly greater improvement after 5 yr. Results parallel those obtained in another 5-yr follow-up based on a similar patient sample. The nature and effect of differential treatment over long periods of time is discussed in terms of differential patient attrition, criteria of successful psychotherapy, and the influence of nonspecific factors in psychotherapy.
