Patients' Contexts and Their Effects on Clinicians' Impressions of Conduct Disorder Symptoms
De Los Reyes, Andres; Marsh, Jessecae K.
Journal of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology, v40 n3 p479-485 2011
The purpose of this study was to examine whether contextual information about patients' clinical presentations affected clinicians' judgments of conduct disorder symptoms. Forty-five clinicians read vignettes describing hypothetical patients who displayed one conduct disorder symptom alongside information about the patients' home, school, and peer contexts. Clinicians judged the likelihood of patients meeting conduct disorder criteria. Contextual information highly affected judgments and these effects varied across the 15 conduct disorder symptoms. It is important to note that clinical judgments were not in agreement on the symptoms affected by context. (Contains 4 tables, 2 figures and 6 footnotes.)
