MetadataShow full item record
This research provides insights into the success factors of work reintegration coaching of recovering addicts, a subject that has not been much researched so far. The relationship between goal focused coaching, recovery capital and sustainable work reintegration is being investigated among recovering addicts. Recovery capital consists of social, human and cultural capital and all three components would contribute in a different way to sustainable work reintegration. It was expected that goal focused coaching would have a positive relationship with recovery capital and work reintegration. In addition, it was expected that social, human and cultural capital would act as mediators between goal-focused coaching and work reintegration. 102 participants took part in this study, and an online questionnaire was completed. The results of the study show a positive relationship between goal focused coaching and sustainable work reintegration, and between goal focused coaching and social, human and cultural capital. The expected mediation effect was not found, and no significant relationship was found between recovery capital and work reintegration. The post hoc analysis showed that human capital had the most explained variance on work reintegration. Practical implications are aimed at goal focused coaching, in which goal setting and structure play an important role. Coaches are advised to let the client participate in goal setting and to focus on increasing human capital in the coaching process. Suggestions for future research mainly focus on examining the role of motivation and work experience in relation to recovery capital and goal focused coaching.
