Some Influences of Family Group Therapy on the Rehabilitation Potential of Clients. A Delgado Research Study. Final Report.
Galloway, John P.; Goldstein, Harris K.
The Delgado Rehabilitation Center, New Orleans, Louisiana, conducted this study to determine the influence of family therapy on clients receiving rehabilitation services at the Center. An experimental group of randomly selected relatives of 33 clients received group therapy while 39 other randomly selected relatives served as controls. Criteria variables used to evaluate the influence of group therapy were of two types: (1) those measuring the client's rehabilitation potential through evaluation of personal, social, educational and vocational factors; and (2) those reflecting the client's adjustment and vocational success a year after leaving the Center. Client changes among the experimental group were significantly higher for a number of personal and vocational objectives, while no significant changes were evidenced by the control group. (SJL)
