Abstract

Empowerment denotes a sense of personal competence which is considered an essential requisite of fair outcome in schizophrenia. The current study assessed empowerment along with other relevant variables in patients with schizophrenia and a comparison group. Hierarchical multiple linear regression analysis identified independent living skills survey score and perceived social support as predicting empowerment in patients with schizophrenia, suggesting a correlational relationship. Empowerment could be a treatment goal in schizophrenia and independent living skills as well as perceived social support could be the mediating factors.
