An Empirical Typology of Seriously and Persistently Mentally Ill Patients Using Symptom and Social Functioning Factors.
Hannah, Mo Therese
Journal of Clinical Psychology, v49 n5 p622-37 Sep 1993
Generated empirical, statistically based typology that used both symptom data and social functioning dimensions to define subtypes of 218 seriously and persistently mentally ill patients. Data were factor analyzed and then submitted to cluster analysis that yielded five meaningful patient subtypes. There were significant subgroup differences on clinically important external variables, including needs for specific types of treatment. (Author/NB)
