Cognitive Distortion and Psychological Distress in Chronic Low Back Pain.
Smith, Timothy W.; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v54 n4 p573-75 Aug 1986
Indicated that cognitive distortion was associated with high scores on the Minnesota Multiophasic Personality Inventory (MMPH) Depression (D), Psychasthenia (Pt), and Schizophrenia (Sc) scales, but not the Hypochondriasis (Hs) and Hysteria (Hy) scales. Cognitive distortion is likely to be an important factor in general distress but not in somatization among back pain patients. (Author/ABB)
