Holden, Borge; Gitlesen, Jens Petter
Research in Developmental Disabilities, v24 n5 p323-32 Sep-Oct 2003
A sample of 165 adults with mental retardation was surveyed for the presence of psychiatric symptoms, mental retardation level, and challenging behavior. Challenging behavior was associated with increased prevalence of psychiatric symptoms, especially anxiety and psychosis, and not with depression. No association was found between anxiety and self-injurious behavior. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
