Measuring psychopathology by Anne Farmer( Book )
10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 183 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

A Living Hell ( visu )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Devised and presented by Prof. Lewis Wolpert (University College, London), this series was inspired by his own experience of severe depression. The first episode opens with a view of Saneline counsellors at work. Prof. Wolpert now realises how difficult it is for people to understand the sufferings of the clinically depressed. He visits the psychiatrist who treated him at the Royal Free Hospital, London, and they discuss his own experience of the condition. Two women describe their different experiences of clinical depression and their strategies for fighting it. Dr. Aaron Beck (Philadelphia) and Dr. Joe Herbert (Univ. of Cambridge) discuss the psychology and brain physiology of depression and Prof. Peter McGuffin (Univ. of Wales) discusses his research into the genetic inheritance of depression which includes studies of identical twins and of a colony of rhesus monkeys. Experimental work with children aimed at disclosing insecurity is also shown, as it is thought that childhood insecurity can be a factor in adult depression
Measuring depression : comparison and integration of three scales in the GENDEP study ( Article )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 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
