This study aims to evaluate the application of a situational assessment instrument, the Chinese Work Personality Profile (CWPP), to predict the work rehabilitation placements of persons with psychiatric disabilities. Using the five CWPP subscale scores as predictors, both discriminant and classification and regression tree analysis showed that the CWPP scores correctly identified more than 80% of the work rehabilitation placements of the 179 participants. Social skills, self-control, and task orientation factors of the CWPP were the most important predictors of work rehabilitation placements, and clinical implications for these results were discussed.
