This study investigated the relationships between the satisfaction of the needs for esteem and belongingness at work and on the ward and the rehabilitation progress of psychotic patients. It compared the need satisfactions of patients in a hospital rehabilitation program with those of patients not in a hospital rehabilitation program. The study was set within Maslow's motivation theory, and Roe's application to work and the disabled. The basic hypotheses tested were: (l) Hospitalized psychotic patients whose needs for belongingness and esteem are being satisfied on the ward and/or at work will tend to make greater progress in their rehabilitation than patients whose needs are not being satisfied. (2) Hospitalized psychotic patients in a hospital rehabilitation program will tend to have greater satisfaction of their needs for belongingness and esteem than the satisfaction obtained by patients not in a hospital rehabilitation program.
