A sample of inpatient, burn-injured adults (N = 95) were assessed upon discharge, and 4 and 12 months later with a structured interview and DSM-III-R criteria. The prevalence of disorder in this sample was contrasted with published data on a representative national community-dwelling comparison group in the National Comorbidity Study. The prevalence of… (More)
This is a complete report of an open trial of manualized psychodynamic psychotherapy for treatment of panic disorder, Panic-Focused Psychodynamic Psychotherapy (PFPP). Twenty-one patients with PD were entered into a trial of twice-weekly, 24-session treatment. Sixteen of 21 experienced remission of panic and agoraphobia. Treatment completers with depression… (More)
OBJECTIVE The impact of body image dissatisfaction on quality of life after severe burn injury was investigated after controlling for other determinants of outcome (i.e., injury, distress, and preburn quality of life). METHODS The postburn quality of life (2-months postdischarge) of groups with and without body image dissatisfaction was studied after… (More)
In this paper we arrive at explicit formulae for the infinitesi-mal generators of the action of a complex simple Lie group G on the mani-fold M = G/P where P is a maximal parabolic subgroup. These formulae are obtained by assuming that local coordinates on M are furnished by the nilpotent subalgebra n complementary to the maximal parabolic subalgebra p… (More)
OBJECTIVE This report contains preliminary data from an open trial of brief psychodynamic psychotherapy for panic disorder. METHOD Fourteen patients with primary DSM-IV panic disorder completed a 24-session, twice-weekly course of psychodynamic psychotherapy. Other psychiatric treatment was not permitted throughout the 12-week treatment period and the… (More)
This note gives an explicit formula for the elements of the E 8 root system. The formula is triacontagonally symmetric in that one may clearly see an action by the cyclic group with 30 elements. The existence of such a formula is due to the fact that the Coxeter number of E 8 is 30.
Can risk-taking propensity be thought of as a trait that captures individual differences across domains, measures, and time? Studying stability in risk-taking propensities across the life span can help to answer such questions by uncovering parallel, or divergent, trajectories across domains and measures. We contribute to this effort by using data from… (More)
This note describes a way to realize a " projective " version of Gosset's 240-vertex semiregular polytope 421 using the Clifford algebra Cl(8) generated by an 8-dimensional vector space equipped with a non-degenerate quadratic form. The 120 vertices of this projective Gosset figure are also seen to coincide with a particular basis for the Lie algebra so(16).
