This brief report explores the external correlates of 2 higher order structures of the Personality Assessment Inventory (PAI; Morey, 1991, 2007); Hoelzle and Meyer's (2009a, 2009b) PAI Components and Hopwood and Moser's (2011) Internalizing and Externalizing Dimensions.

Patient and therapist ratings of alliance as well as independent clinical ratings of psychodynamic interventions were assessed during(More)
Although psychodynamic therapy has a well-articulated model of therapeutic change for anxiety, few empirical studies have examined specific treatment interventions related to symptom improvement. We examined the degree of adherence to a psychodynamic model of therapy (Blagys and Hilsenroth [Clin Psychol 7:167-188, 2000) related to changes in anxiety(More)
There has been surprisingly little research into the stimulus properties of the Thematic Apperception Test Cards (TAT; Murray, 1943).
