MMPI Item Responses of Alcoholics in Treatment: Comparisons with Normals and Psychiatric Patients.
Conley, James J.; Kammeier, Mary L.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v48 n5 p668-69 Oct 1980
Seven Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI) items distinguish alcoholics in treatment from normals and psychiatric patients. These items have substantial face validity. MMPI scales developed as screening devices for alcoholism did not discriminate the alcoholics in treatment and the psychiatric patients as strongly as did these seven items alone. (Author)
