Abstract

Objectives: To investigate psychological symptomatology and distress in subgroups of chronic pain patients with different adaptation styles. Methods: Subjects were 660 patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain who were tested by the combined use of the two large and much used psychological inventories-the Multidimensional Pain Inventory and the Symptom Checklist-90-Revised. Results: The results showed significant differences between the three adaptation profiles, dysfunctional, interpersonally distressed, and adaptive copers. Adaptive copers were equally and less distressed than a sample from anormal population. Conclusion: This study calls attention to the risk of blind faith of the 'objectiveness' of psychometric scales and of the use of them as the sole basis for designing treatments. More attention seems to be needed to get moreinformation about the 'healthy' group of adaptive copers by extended clinical judgment. (C) 2001 by The Haworth Press, Inc. All rights reserved.
