MMPI-A structural summary variables: prevalence and correlates in an adolescent inpatient psychiatric sample

MMPI-A structural summary variables: prevalence and correlates in an adolescent inpatient psychiatric sample

Assessment 9(4): 334-342

This study examined the prevalence and correlates of Archer and Krishnamurthy's MMPI-A Structural Summary (SS) dimensions in a sample of 632 adolescent psychiatric inpatients through a series of correlational analyses. These analyses examined the relationship between factor dimensions and categorically defined dimension elevations and external criterion measures that included chart review data, therapist ratings, chart diagnoses, and cognitive test performance. The SS dimensions provided additional interpretive yield for some within-normal-limits profiles. An examination of the pattern of correlations revealed small to moderate relationships between all SS variables and external criterion measures.
