Abstract Share this page

Two studies are reported. The first examined the factor structure of the Psychological Mindedness (PM) Scale, and the second reassessed the scale's predictive validity. A principal components analysis (varimax rotation) of the data of 256 psychiatric outpatients produced five factors that accounted for 38% of the variance. A tentative definition of PM based on these factors is proposed. For a subsample of 116 patients who attended at least four psychotherapy sessions, PM was unrelated to levels of functioning and psychosocial symptoms at admission and was positively associated with number of sessions attended, consistent with findings of a preliminary investigation. Not replicated were significant correlations between PM and outcome measures derived from therapists' and an independent rater's evaluations. Initially high PM was significantly related to patients' self-ratings of symptoms and problems after discharge.
