Objective: Analyses of motivational and volitional determinants of applying for psychosomatic rehabilitation Methods: Determinants of a rehabilitation request were assessed by a questionnaire in 2013. Applications for psychosomatic rehabilitation measures until the end of 2014 were extracted from administrative data records. Included were employees with mental disorders. Results: Only 55 of 974 persons requested a rehabilitation measure. The intention to apply for a rehabilitation measure was strongest determined by self-efficacy and family and professional support. Planning was explained by intention and to a lesser extent by family and physician support. Persons with higher planning scores were more likely to apply for a rehabilitation measure. Physician support also increased the likelihood of a rehabilitation request. Conclusion: The analyses identified determinants of rehabilitation claims that are modifiable. This gives opportunities to support rehabilitation claims. However, the contribution of these factors to explain rehabilitation requests is only limited.
