Measuring Depression in a Clinical Population Using the MMPI.
Nelson, Linda D.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v55 n5 p788-90 Oct 1987
Administered Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI) to clinically depressed and nondepressed inpatients, and compared scores from its Depression scale with scores from the Beck Depression Inventory. Demonstrated a positive linear relationship between the two measures and their ability to discriminate between depressed and nondepressed groups. Removal of obvious subscale items from MMPI Depression scale improved discrimination. (Author/KS)
