Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Comparison of illness management and recovery treatment and psychological treatment-as-usual in a state psychiatric hospital
by Johnson, Beth A., Psy.D., Capella University, 2007, 115; 3290978
Abstract (Summary)

Madison State Hospital, a state operated psychiatric hospital, piloted the Illness Management and Recovery program for individuals diagnosed with severe and persistent mental illness in an effort to integrate recovery oriented psychological services into psychiatric medical treatment in a state psychiatric hospital. A quantitative methodology was used to compare the Illness Management and Recovery program to psychological treatment-as-usual. Further, the study sought to determine if a relationship between patient mental health recovery and level of functioning at the start of treatment predicted patient response to treatment. Psychologist/social worker co-therapists facilitated weekly group therapy utilizing Illness Management and Recovery treatment. Existing research illuminates the clinical utility of Illness management and Recovery treatment in community mental health settings thus the study will serve to fill a gap in the research by examining this treatment modality in a state psychiatric hospital environment. Results of the study may be used to determine if Illness Management and Recovery treatment significantly improves patient mental health recovery scores and could be used enhance treatment planning and decisions being undertaken in compliance with a statewide initiative to reform the mental health care system.
