Psychopathology—assessed by the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (54)—showed low rates of depression (5% above threshold) but 24 Ullrich elevated rates of anxiety (32% above threshold) (55). Multiple regression analysis of psychopathology and several other scales identified self-efficacy as the most important predictor. Self-efficacy explained 31% variance of anxiety scores, and 18% variance of depression scores (with 74%/54% total explained variance, respectively). Regarding differences between diagnostic subsets patients with oligoarthritis were significantly less anxious than other subsets and experienced less pain, too.

This reflects a developmental understanding of adolescents who are now being perceived as individuals with specific needs—and that these needs have to be addressed if interventions and services are to be effective. Nonadherence Studies on nonadherence usually focus on medication taking (36) and disregard avoidance of risk taking behavior as a further dimension of compliance (37). Given the fact, that experimentation is typically associated with adolescence and early adulthood (11), the paucity of literature on experimentation/risk taking and chronic illness is somewhat puzzling.
