 Many adolescent cases of social withdrawal at the Sapporo Mental Health Welfare Center have been diagnosed as pervasive developmental disorder (PDD). The Center has established three groups for these cases: A, B and C. The center carries out therapeutic intervention through occupational therapy and daycare. A clinical study of 30 patients who participated in the three groups was carried out from April, 2009 to March, 2010, and their participation in the groups was observed. This study presents the patients' clinical features and the support activities of each group, and reports on practical activities for psychiatric rehabilitation of patients with PDD in adolescence in Sapporo. Results indicate that among these activities, occupational therapy appears to be effective within group support.
