We used a randomized clinical trial to investigate the interaction of two patient personality characteristics (quality of object relations [QOR] and psychological mindedness [PM]) with two forms of time-limited, short-term group therapy (interpretive and supportive) for 139 psychiatric outpatients with complicated grief. Findings differed depending on the(More)
The relationships between patient personality variables and outcome for 107 psychiatric outpatients with complicated grief who completed either interpretive or supportive short-term group therapy were investigated. The personality variables were assessed prior to treatment with the NEO-Five Factor Inventory (NEO-FFI). For patients in both forms of therapy,(More)
OBJECTIVE This study examined whether dimensions of complicated grief (CG) could be distinguished from dimensions of depression and whether these dimensions were differentially affected by group psychotherapy for CG. METHOD A total of 398 psychiatric outpatients who had experienced one or more significant death losses provided ratings on standard measures(More)
This prospective study investigated the impact of group composition on the outcome of 2 forms of time-limited, short-term group therapy (interpretive, supportive) with 110 outpatients from 18 therapy groups, who presented with complicated grief. The composition variable was based on the patient's level of quality of object relations. The higher the(More)
OBJECTIVE The outcome of a day treatment program for psychiatric outpatients with affective and personality disorders was evaluated. The program was dynamically oriented, intensive, group focused, and time limited (18 weeks). METHODS The prospective trial used a randomized treatment-versus-control (delayed-treatment) design to examine 17 outcome variables(More)
In a recent study, the patient characteristic quality of object relations (QOR) was directly related to favorable outcome (reduction of grief symptoms) among a sample of 53 outpatients with complicated grief who completed treatment in 1 of 8 time-limited, interpretive therapy groups. Recent research literature has suggested that patient affect variables may(More)
This study examined the relationships among patient affect (experienced and expressed), work, and outcome in two forms of time-limited, short-term group therapy for complicated grief. Work was defined as the degree to which the patient pursued the primary objectives of the two forms of therapy. Substantial evidence of direct relationships between the(More)
A recently completed clinical trial that investigated the effectiveness of a group-oriented, day treatment program provided an opportunity to pursue a multidimensional approach to the prediction of treatment outcome. The sample consisted of 99 psychiatric outpatients, most of whom had received diagnoses of affective and personality disorders. The predictor(More)
The author reviews recent studies on the evaluation of partial hospitalization programs in North America and Europe. The lack of a clear definition of partial hospitalization is one of the factors leading to its underutilization, many authorities believe. After discussing the nomenclature and emphasizing the importance of classifying programs by(More)
This study examined the ability of seven patient characteristics to predict success (remaining, benefiting) in a day treatment program for psychiatric outpatients. The sample consisted of 165 patients, most with affective and personality disorders, who participated in an intensive psychodynamically and group-oriented program within a controlled clinical(More)
