Abstract:
Article describing a conceptual framework for assessing individual psychological empowerment in rehabilitation outcome research. The article reviews recent examples of empirical studies of empowerment in the rehabilitation literature, and discusses empowerment theory before presenting its general framework for the construct of psychological empowerment. The authors argue that psychological empowerment must be conceptualized differently for specific contexts and populations, and that therefore a generic global measure of psychological empowerment is neither possible nor desirable.
