Measuring psychopathology by Anne Farmer ( )
8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 675 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Measuring Psychopathology describes the methods by which the signs and symptoms of mental disorder are elicited, examined and evaluated.; Written for the non-clinical researcher as well as for those with clinical experience, the authors start by considering the question 'what is psychopathology?' They then employ a historical perspective to explain why and how mental disorders are currently classified, and how the use of an operational approach to diagnosis was adopted. The use of operational criteria to define psychiatric disorder has facilitated the development of standardised interviewing techniques, questionnaires and rating scales. These tools are all covered in some detail, not only with regard to adults with mental disorders, but also with reference to special and challenging groups such as children and the elderly, and those with a learning disability, substance misuse, or who have a personality disorder.; The strengths and weaknesses of current methodologies are explored and debated as well as the future diagnostic needs for research in the 21st century.; Essential reading for clinicians and non-clinical scientists engaged in research on psychiatric disorders, trainees and junior psychiatrists, and clinical psychologists

Light ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Dr. Mark Porter looks at how light is being used to treat conditions as diverse as acne and cancer. Photodynamic therapy using light-sensitive drugs called photosensitisers is being used to destroy tumours. We also hear about Seasonal Affective Disorder, a type of depression that affects people during the onset of the winter months. Finally, laser treatments may provide a cure for many acne sufferers
Can the interaction of poverty and literacy explain some variability of suicide rates in Europe? by Andrej Marušič ( )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The main aim of the study was to investigate whether literacy rates and gross domestic products interact in predicting national suicide rates in 33 Europeancountries where data for all these rates are available. It resulted that high literacy rates significantly predicted high suicide rates even when controlling for gross domestic product (GDP) and age distribution (r = 0.584; p < 0.001). When the GDP per capita was added to the linear regression model, the latter improved considerably (F = 10.801; p < 0.001). We concluded that literacy rates may represent an important ecological risk factor for completedsuicides. One potential mechanism for negative impact of high literacy rates could be that high literacy leads to a better understanding of impoverished social circumstances. It is also possible that literacy is just aconfounding variable. For example, suicide statistics might be more reliable in countries with higher levels of literacy. Nevertheless, the striking finding that literacy and suicide rates are associated is worthy of further investigation

Measuring depression : comparison and integration of three scales in the GENDEP study ( )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
BACKGROUND: A number of scales are used to estimate the severity of depression. However, differences between self-report and clinician rating, multi-dimensionality and different weighting of individual symptoms in summed scores may affect the validity of measurement. In this study we examined and integrated the psychometric properties of three commonly used rating scales. METHOD: The 17-item Hamilton Depression Rating Scale (HAMD-17), the Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) and the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) were administered to 660 adult patients with unipolar depression in a multi-centre pharmacogenetic study. Item response theory (IRT)and factor analysis were used to evaluate their psychometric properties and estimate true depression severity, as well as to group items and derive factor scores. RESULTS: The MADRS and the BDI provide internally consistent but mutually distinct estimates of depression severity. The HAMD-17 is not internally consistent and contains several items less suitable for out-patients. Factor analyses indicated a dominant depression factor. A model comprising three dimensions, namely 'observed mood and anxiety', 'cognitive' and 'neurovegetative', provided a more detailed description of depression severity. CONCLUSIONS: The MADRS and the BDI can be recommended as complementary measures of depression severity. The three factor scores are proposed for external validation
