The relationship between symptoms of depression and hemispheric bias on mental status examinations among elderly subjects with dementia by David Powell( Book )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE), the Modified Mini-Mental State Examination (3MS), and the Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS) are some of the most widely used screening tests for symptoms of dementia and/or depression. Symptoms of depression often go unnoticed and, therefore, untreated when a person has a cognitive impairment because the symptoms of depression are often mistakenly attributed to the dementia. In order to better understand the relationship between these specific screening instruments, the following study compared the performances of elderly persons diagnosed with either Vascular Dementia (VaD) or Alzheimer's Dementia (DAT) on these measures, with a particular emphasis on contrasting visual and verbal cognitive skills and their relationship with symptoms of depression. Results showed that VaD subjects reported significantly more symptoms of depression than subjects with DAT. In a combined (VaD and DAT) dementia group, symptoms of depression were found to relate to verbal cognitive skills, while visuospatial skills had no relationship with symptoms of depression. These findings suggest that relying on screening tools that fail to separate verbal from visuospatial skills may lead clinicians to ignore vital differences between various subtypes of dementia. Further considerations for assessing these populations are discussed

Multidimensional assessment of body image in eating disorders, body dysmorphic disorder, obesity, and clinical controls by Joshua I Hrabosky( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Body image is a multidimensional construct that consists of cognitive, affective; behavioral, and perceptual elements. Although "body image disturbance" is a defining characteristic for eating disorders and body dysmorphic disorder, and is also associated with obesity, its definition has been unclear within the literature. Furthermore, little research has been performed in comparing these various clinical groups on diverse measures of body image. The purpose of the current study is to understand the multidimensionality of body image in individuals suffering from an eating disorder, body dysmorphic disorder, or obesity. Assessments included measures of body image evaluation, investment, schematicity, emotional distress, overweight preoccupation, behavioral coping, and quality of life, as well as a new integrative measure of body image disturbance
The classification accuracy of the MMPI-A: effects of modifying the normative sample by Cynthia Grey Hand( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examined the ability of the MMPI-A basic scales to yield scores that accurately classified adolescents from nonclinical and clinical settings. As noted in numerous studies, the MMPI-A produces a high frequency of within-normal-limits basic scale profiles for adolescents with significant clinical pathology. In a review of clinical studies published in peer-reviewed journals since the publication of the MMPI-A, only nine of the 32 included studies found significant scale elevations on at least one basic MMPI-A clinical scale; nearly half of this latter group found elevations only on scale 4. The current study builds on the work of Lynch (2003) and Lynch, Archer, & Handel (2001), who documented that the MMPI-A normative sample included subjects who indicated during data collection that they had been referred within the prior six months for counseling or therapy services. Those subjects who had been referred for counseling were removed from the normative group, and T-score values were recalculated for given basic scale raw scores using the modified MMPI-A norms. The net effect of these modifications, however, did not result in increases in sensitivity in detecting positive cases without substantially decreasing specificity. The overall hit rate, positive predictive power, and sensitivity were essentially unaffected by removing the subjects and recalculating the norms. These results were discussed within the context of the difficulties inherent in discerning normal from abnormal functioning during adolescence
The influence of therapist interventions in structural family therapy: a process study by Denise L Miles( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Currently, there is limited process research that identifies the essential ingredients used to facilitate change in family therapy. This correlational study explored the relationship between therapist interventions and amount of within-session change in structural family therapy. The sample was comprised of 24 videotaped therapy sessions that included an equal number of expert and novice therapists. Three therapist-intervention variables were rated by 2 graduate students and a clinical psychologist on 7-point Likert scales: establishment of a working alliance, focus on the core problem dynamic, and intensity of therapist interventions. These variables were correlated with ratings of within-session change, made independently by 3 undergraduate psychology students. Clients' level of resistance was also rated and factored in when evaluating the impact of therapist interventions on within-session change. The findings suggested that the combination of focus on the core problem dynamic and level of intensity was positively correlated with within-session change. A significant difference was also found between experienced and inexperienced therapists for the variables of focus on the problem dynamic, level of intensity, and within-session change, such that experienced therapists had higher ratings of each variable
The Megargee MMPI-2 system : relationship between the Margargee classification system and selected psychiatric and criminal correlates by Anthony Dawane Duncan( )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between the revised Megargee classification system developed for the MMPI-2 as it applies to mentally ill offenders receiving psychiatric treatment at Cook County Jail. This study evaluated whether the MMPI-2 Megargee classification system can be usefully applied to classify criminal offenders who received psychiatric care within the Cook County Jail facility. This is the first study to investigate the generalizability of the MMPI-2 Megargee classification system with a sample of jail detainees receiving psychiatric treatment during their incarceration. The data in this study were also compared with three other studies which examined similar forensic psychiatric populations using the original Megargee classification system developed for the MMPI (Edinger, Reuterfors, & Logue, 1982; Hutton, Miner, & Langfeldt, 1993; Wrobel, Wrobel, & McIntosh, 1988)

Psychometric properties of the Florida Obsessive Compulsive Inventory and the Schedule of Compulsions, Obessions and Pathological Impulses by Amber Lea Walser( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The current study aimed to gather psychometric data on two newly designed Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder self-report measures. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder has historically been evaluated with clinician-administered assessments or short form self reports given in the treatment setting. Critics of earlier measures noted the lengthy format could be time consuming in therapy sessions, and that the available measures failed to provide information on the widest possible array of potential obsessions and compulsions. Further, many assessment tools do not evaluate for highly correlated behaviors like compulsive hoarding, which, although not recognized as a symptom of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, is generating much scholarly research and discussion regarding its influence and role in OCD manifestations. The Florida Obsessive Compulsive Inventory and the Schedule of Compulsions, Obsessions, and Pathological Impulses incorporate both shortened administration and items regarding a broader spectrum of obsessive and compulsive behaviors. These two measures have been published and validated by their respective authors only within the last few years and little follow up research has been published replicating initial psychometric findings. Scant research uses these measures on larger clinical, normal, diverse and obsessive-compulsive samples. In addition, neither measure was administered in an internet format. The current study gathered such information through the use of internet administration and expands the knowledge base of how these measures work within larger, more diverse samples. This study expanded the research base with regard to how the SCOPI and FOCI perform in large sample of college students. Good convergent and discriminant validity with regard to the FOCI, SCOPI, and a measure of positive and negative moods was obtained. Support for the reliability and validity of scores on these measures was found in the present sample. Furthermore, factor analyses replicated the factor structure upon which the development of the Schedule of Compulsions, Obsessions, and Pathological Impulses was based
Exposure to violence and psychological functioning in black children : an examination of the mediational relation of emotion regulation by Debra W Brown( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examined the meditational relation of emotion regulation (ER) to the association between exposure to violence (ETV) and internalizing and externalizing problems, in a sample of 251 Black children in grades 2-5 (M = 8.95 years), living in a high-poverty and -crime neighborhood. Two periods in middle childhood (i.e., grades 2-3 and 4-5) were examined, as well as gender differences. The study used a multi-informant (i.e., self, parent, peer) method to measure symptomatology, with ETV and ER assessed by self-report. Witnessing mild and severe violence was examined, as were discrete aspects of ER (i.e., dysregulation, inhibition) in the context of distinct emotional experiences (i.e., anger, sadness, worry)
