dc.description.abstract This study examined the utility of the Dean-Woodcock Emotional Status Examination (D-WESE). As part of the Dean-Woodcock Neuropsvchology Battery, the D-WESE is a 50-item measure of emotional functioning. Its ability to predict pathology as compared to the MMPI Clinical Scales was investigated. The D-WESE gains information about a wide range of symptoms within a short period of time.An existing data set was utilized in this study. It included 207 patients referred for psychological and neuropsychological evaluation from a large outpatient Midwestern neurology practice. The age ranged between 13 and 96 years (M = 56.53).The results of an exploratory factor analysis with oblique rotation revealed an 11factor solution consisting of eigenvalues greater than 1.00. The D-WESE factors were significantly correlated with the MMPI Clinical Scales and a poor to good percent (1670%) of the variance could be accounted for through Stepwise Multiple Regressions. The results were discussed in terms of their relationship with established MMPI codetypes. Overall, the D-WESE was found to have a moderate degree of overlap and predictive validity as compared to the MMPI. en_US
