Role of Self-Efficacy in Rehabilitation Outcome among Chronic Low Back Pain Patients.
Altmaier, Elizabeth M.; And Others
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v40 n3 p335-39 Jul 1993
Examined role of self-efficacy beliefs in rehabilitation of 45 low back pain patients participating in 3-week rehabilitation program. Increments in self-efficacy beliefs during program were not associated with improved patient functioning at discharge. However, in support of theorized role of self-efficacy in behavior change, increments in self-efficacy significantly predicted better patient functioning and less reported pain at six-month follow-up.
