Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Interpretive rules for both standard scales and factor scales of the MMPI 168 were developed to predict long-term outcome (6 months to 3 years postdischarge) of an inpatient pain management program. Rules for both standard-scale and factor-scale interpretation correctly identified 79% of pain program 'successes' and 'failures'. Results provide support for the MMPI-168 as a brief, useful measure of personality functioning in a physical medicine setting.
