MMPI Dependency Scale norms for alcoholics and psychiatric inpatients



MMPI Dependency Scale norms for alcoholics and psychiatric inpatients



Journal of Clinical Psychology 40(1): 345-346



The MMPI Dependency (DY) Scale has a significant number of items that do not fall within the MMPI Form R format. The present study provides norms for the DY based on Form R responses from 1,505 male and female hospitalized psychiatric patients and alcoholics. While females had higher DY scores than males, alcoholics and psychiatric patients did not differ. It was found that T scores for a Form R version of the DY scale can be obtained easily from previously published DY norm tables.
