Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

Patient compliance after transplantation is of key importance since even moderate deviations from the prescribed therapy regime may cause organ rejection. Patients with alcoholic liver cirrhosis require special therapeutic preparation before the liver transplantation.

METHODS:

A manualised group therapy with the aim of maintaining alcohol abstinence, increasing coping skills and therapy adherence is presented and illustrated with a case history. The manual is based on the elements of psychoeducation and problem-solving training. In a second article the results of the clinical evaluation are described.
