The deficits will result in disability and impact on the independent performance in daily living. The self-efficacy of patients with stroke are declined and their depressive mood may heightened according to the outcome of stroke.

Their perceived self-efficacy on performance and depressive mood were measured before and after the actual performance. The result showed patients had a significant increased in self-efficacy and decreased in depressive mood after gaining experience of performing the tasks. The performance of CDT was largely predicted by the self-efficacy. The result supports practice of activities is able to improve self-efficacy and depressive mood of patients with stroke.
