Psychological interventions may enhance health-related quality of life in people with epilepsy. The concepts of self-efficacy and mastery may be particularly relevant in the context of epilepsy. To date, the investigation of psychological interventions has not included a qualitative analysis of the effects of such interventions on the interrelation between mastery and general and epilepsy-specific self-efficacy. This qualitative study aimed to explore the relationship between the lived experiences of these concepts in people with epilepsy who participated in a resource-oriented and mindfulness-based psychotherapeutic intervention delivered on a one-to-one basis in an outpatient setting.
