Depressive affect in assisted living (n = 351) and community dwelling (n = 102) elderly was compared by means of the state and trait forms of Set 1 of the Depression Adjective Check Lists (DACL). Four separate analyses of covariance (age as covariate) showed the main effects of living arrangement and form to be significant on each of the four lists.(More)
Four levels of depression were established on the ST-Depression Adjective Check Lists in terms of the following criterion measures: the Beck Depression Inventory, the MMPI Depression Scale, and the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale.
A study of 185 psychiatric patients with anxiety, mood, and schizophrenic disorders and 185 matched nonpatient controls investigated the effectiveness of the affect trait scales of the revised Multiple Affect Adjective Check List (MAACL-R) in differentiating the three disorders. Univariate and multivariate analyses supported the usefulness of the affect in(More)
In order to provide additional data on the diagnostic efficiency of the DACL in a situation in which dual diagnoses that involve depression also are considered, two groups of psychiatric patients completed DACL list E and independently were assigned psychiatric diagnoses via the Psychiatric Diagnostic Interview. Findings indicate that the DACL may be of(More)
We compared the efficacy of the state form of the MAACL-R (Zuckerman & Lubin, 1985) in predicting success in Air Force basic training. Results of discriminant functions analyses showed that the Anxiety, Depression, Hostility, Positive Affect, and Sensation Seeking scales of the state MAACL-R efficiently predicted success in basic training. The need to(More)
In order to determine the predictive validity of the Total Mood score, the Negative Mood Scale, and the Positive Mood Scale of the ST-Depression Adjective Check Lists (ST-DACL), the state version of lists C and D of the ST-DACL was administered on the second day of the Air Force basic training program to 229 newly enlisted Air Force recruits (men = 113;(More)
Psychometric characteristics of the trait version of Set 2 (E, F, G) of the Depression Adjective Check Lists (DACL) were studied in a sample of 177 consecutive admissions to a university medical center clinic of adult psychiatric outpatients (60 males, 117 females). The SCL-90-R and the Psychiatric Diagnostic Interview also were administered. The trait DACL(More)
The reliability and validity of the trait form of the Depression Adjective Check List (DACL) for Sets 1 and 2 were determined with adolescents in Grades 7 to 9 (Set 1) and Grades 8 to 12 (Set 2). Internal consistency, split-half, test-retest, and alternate form reliability were high, as was convergent and discriminant validity. Results of ANOVAs (Sex x(More)
In order to develop a Japanese version of the Multiple Affect Adjective Checklist-Revised (MAACL-R), the 66 scored adjectives were translated into Japanese and translated back into English as recommended by Werner and Campbell (1971). Confirmatory factor analyses evidenced the existence of five first-order factors (i.e., the anxiety, depression, hostility,(More)
Brief, reliable, and valid assessment instruments are very important for clinical psychology research and practice. The possible equivalency of a short form and the long form of the Multiple Affect Adjective Check List-Revised (MAACL-R; Zuckerman & Lubin,1985) was studied by correlating both forms of the MAACL-R with the State Trait Personality Inventory(More)
