Abstract

The project dealt in two parts with dropouts in psychotherapies. The first part of the report focused on definitions, parameters for describing psychotherapy dropouts and explanatory models. In addition, dropout predictors were identified at a meta-level, which were further empirically recorded in the second report part by an "Overview of systematic reviews". In this context, evidence synthesis (including 14 systematic reviews/meta-analyses) showed that a (young) age of psychotherapy patients and certain mental disorders (such as personality disorders) can represent relevant risk factors for an unplanned termination of psychotherapy. Dropout predictors, which are more likely to be attributed to psychotherapists, are currently only partially researched. With regard to suitable prevention strategies, eight measures were proposed in the report which, among other things, aim at organisational aspects (e.g. clarification of therapy goals, possibilities and limits of psychotherapy) and interpersonal factors (e.g. strengthening the therapeutic alliance between patient and psychotherapist).
