Stress related long term illness for depression, anxiety, and chronic fatigue syndrome has increased dramatically in the last decade in Sweden and discussions about what should be included in a rehabilitation program for individuals with chronic fatigue syndrome continues. How rehabilitation is implemented is crucial for recovery and return to work. What in the work rehabilitation of people with chronic fatigue syndrome is perceived as most effective is, thus, important to take note of. Have the rehabilitation contributed to perceived improvements? What in the rehabilitation has been most appreciated and what can be done better? This thesis was based on the clients´ perspectives and experiences, not tied to a particular method. With the model a "Sense of Coherence" (SOC) (Antonovsky, 2009), as a foundation, a questionnaire regarding areas within rehabilitation and perceived quality of life, before and after the rehabilitation, was formed. Eight people diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome were interviewed. The results were analyzed with a thematic analysis method. The patterns and themes were related to the SOC model to see if the results could be understood and interpreted with the model. The results show that the rehabilitation had a positive effect on health and quality of life and that the totality of the measures had the greatest impact, with great improvements as a result.
