“As a practitioner, I saw a number of patients with previous psychotherapies that had failed. The commonest reasons for failure were mis-diagnoses, and of those, a frequent culprit was the failure to recognize the contribution of traumatic experience to a patient’s illness. In retrospect, that wasn’t surprising because the patients generally didn’t know it either.”

from Wichita State University-
Research in Psychopathology
” Introduction

Our research program focuses primarily on traditional psychometric research on personality and psychopathology in hospitalized psychiatric inpatients. We are especially interested in the construct of demoralization and its relationship to anxiety and depression.
Current Projects

We just published a paper on the factor structure of the Millon Adolescent Clinical Inventory (MACI) Scales. Other projects include a study of demoralization as it relates to the scales of the Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory-III (MCMI-III), a study of the Higher Order scales of the new MMPI-2-RF inventory, a study of the MCMI-III facet scales with facet scales derived for the MMPI-2-RC inventory, a study of the efficiency of the MCMI-III personality scales to predict membership in three Axis II diagnostic categories, a study of the effect of age and gender on demoralization, depression, and anxiety, and a study of the relationship of the new MMPI-2-RF Fs scale to the Modifying Indices of the MCMI-III.”
