Verbal interaction patterns of depressed and nondepressed institutionalized mentally retarded adults



Verbal interaction patterns of depressed and nondepressed institutionalized mentally retarded adults



Applied Research in Mental Retardation 3(1): 1-12



Data obtained through 18, 5 min observations of 9 depressed and 9 non-depressed institutionalized mentally retarded adults revealed 5 patterns of verbal interaction including: other individuals were more likely to request action from depressed individuals than to make declarative statements; the depressed subjects were more likely to gain compliance by exhibiting negative effect; the depressed subjects were more likely to resist request by exhibiting negative affect; other individuals were more likely to exhibit negative affect when interacting with depressed subjects; staff rather than peers were more likely to interact with depressed subject. Depressed and non-depressed subjects could not be differentiated by the number of communications initiated which did not require a response from others and on the percentage of communications initiated with staff.
