The multinomial logistic regression analysis for predicting client case disposition via the four predictors (age, income, difficulty, and GAF Scale
) was tested as useful, with observed cell frequencies not differing significantly from expected cell frequencies, Pearson) [chi square] (720) = 744.09,p = .259, [alpha] = .05, w = 27.28.
(19,20) The GAF scale
is a 100-point single-item rating scale for overall psychosocial functioning and takes into account the patient's psychological, social, and occupational functioning.
(2005) have shown that the problem with the original GAF scale
is that it includes both symptom and function, which has led to the split-GAF (Pedersen et al., 2007) that enables the study of each variable separately.
Executive functioning measures showed some significant relationships and between-group differences with scores on the SFS and GAF scales
. Poor functional status regarding recreation and independent living were significantly associated with lower performance on planning and verbal and non-verbal fluency (p<.05).
Individual criteria for all the mental disorders on Axis I and Axis 11 of the DSM-IV, the GAF scales
, and the Severity of Psychological Stressors Scale for Adults and Children are included.
