Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


140 adolescent in patients were rated on a 40 item, 3 point behavior scale. A principal component analysis was made and two major factors emerged which accounted for 44.3% of the total variance: one factor related to level of functioning and over inhibition and the other to aggression. A graphical representation of the patients with respect to the above factors provided important information as regards prognosis and clinical diagnosis. As in previous related studies, the validity of clinical diagnostic categories was confirmed and information on the process of making these diagnoses was provided.
