The aim of this thesis is to evaluate the effectiveness of PST for patients in the rehabilitation phase after stroke. In order to do so, we aim to
[1] investigate the relationships between coping strategy, problem solving skills, depression and HR-QoL after stroke and
[2] to evaluate the effect of PST on coping strategy and HR-QoL. Finally, we want to
[3] evaluate the effectiveness of other stroke rehabilitation interventions on HR-QoL.
