Introduction P1: GKW/RKP P2: GKW Psychiatric Quarterly [psaq] PH024-297921 April 26, 2001 15:1 Style file version Nov. 19th, 1999 Psychiatric Quarterly, Vol. 72, No. 3, 2001 Special Section Further Defining Anxiety and Depressive Disorders Barbara L. Kennedy, M.D., Ph.D., and John J. Schwab, M.D. To improve our understanding of common anxiety and depressive dis- orders, it is essential to compare data regarding the scales frequently used to evaluate such disorders. There is little data in the literature that compares the use of these scales across these disorders to de- termine if there are differential responses in the different disorders. Also, few standard values for these scales in these disorders are avail- able. In this series of clinical research reports, we sought to enlarge our understanding of 4 common anxiety disorders (panic disorder, general- ized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and social phobia) and 2 depressive disorders (major depression and mixed anxiety and depression) by examining the following clinical scales: the Symptom Checklist-90 (1), the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory, the Bond Defense Style questionnaire (2), and the Cloninger Tridimensional Personality Questionnaire (3). We had a total study population of 229 subjects, with between 25 and 50 persons in most of 6 diagnostic groups. Psychiatric Quarterly Springer Journals
