Abstract

This article discusses a new intervention, which is specifically designed for people with psychiatric complaints and intellectual disabilities. The intervention is based on narrative and life-review therapy. Changes in psychiatric complaints (OQ-45) and mental well-being (MHC-SF) were studied in a pre- and-post design with 20 participants. Changes in possible effective factors, life satisfaction (SWLS), mastery (MS), and purpose in life (PIL) were also assessed. The results showed a decrease in psychiatric symptoms, and an increase in mental well-being, mastery, and life satisfaction. Changes were largest in participants with depressive complaints. It can be concluded that the intervention looks promising for the treatment of people with psychiatric complaints and intellectual disabilities.
