Abstract

Because schizophrenia is considered to be a neurodevelopmental disorder, premorbid adjustment is of particular interest, Premorbid adjustment is probably not a unitary construct but rather is expressed across a number of developmental domains. The current investigation examined the validity of a two-factor model that differentiated premorbid adjustment across social and academic domains and evaluated relationships between these premorbid adjustment domains and other variables of interest, Participants with schizophrenia (n = 141) underwent evaluation of premorbid adjustment (using the Premorbid Adjustment Scale), intellectual functioning, and psychiatric symptoms, Using confirmatory factor analysis, a two-factor model of premorbid adjustment was identified that included an academic domain and a social domain, Thesocial domain was associated with symptom variables, while the academic domain was associated with measures of intelligence. Results provide evidencefor at least two domains of premorbid adjustment in schizophrenia, Distinguishing between these two premorbid domains may be theoretically important because of potential differences in incidence rates and deterioration courses; some individuals with schizophrenia may exhibit adequate academic adjustment but poor social adjustment, while others may exhibit the opposite pattern.
