The Concordance of Rater- and Self-Administration of the Osnabruck Profile of Working Abilities (O-AFP) Objectives: The O-AFP can be used as a rater-administered inventory (RAI) and as a self-report scale (SRS). The study analyses the relations between these versions. Methods: O-AFP-scales for working abilities and work complexity and SCL-90-R data of 88 vocational therapy patients (psychiatric clinic, PC; addiction clinic, AC). Results: Only few significant correlations were found, with slightly higher scores in the AC patients. Also, AC patients rated themselves higher, whereas PC patients rated lower compared to the RAI ratings. The discrepancy between SRS and RAT scores decreased with rising work complexity and with a low symptom strain. With high GSI, SRS scores are clearly lower than RAI scores. Conclusions: The SRS-version of the O-AFP is not appropriate for economizing the assessment process. Rather, it is helpful in therapist-patient communication on issues of work rehabilitation. Correspondence between SRS and RAI ratings can be improved by increasing work requirements.
