Abstract

Conventional rehabilitation for people with physical difficulties is based on mostly a biomedical approach to health focusing on isolated parts of the body without recognizing the patients’ other needs. While more holistic and bio-psycho-social rehabilitation models have been developed, these are generally not recognized and as a result multiple needs are unlikely to be addressed. This qualitative investigation of a rehabilitation in group setting explored the experience and impact of Conductive Education and draws on a complex, person centered, bio-psycho-social rehabilitation method. The research explores physically disabled adult patients’, family members’ and CE professionals’ constructs on group setting in CE with the aim of finding out more about the approach itself and its delivery. Results suggest that CE does not decrease the exceptional result of physical rehabilitation of adult patients but conducts new motivational and developmental factors and broadens elements of rehabilitation in a complex way - holistically providing a life-changing concept. The study concludes with the recommendation for health care providers, rehabilitation institutions, accountable and responsible bodies to introduce and use group setting method in the rehabilitation of adult physical disabled. Furthermore, it is stated that considerably more and adequate investigation need to be done on CE to better understand its complex offer.
