Content Notes


In a prior study, Gatchel, Mayer, and Eddington (2006) demonstrated the utility of an MMPI-2 profile pattern, formerly known as the "Floating Profile", for use with identifying treating outcomes in the context of pain management. Re-termed the "Disability Profile", this profile pattern comprised a large proportion of the sample being studied, and demonstrated several negative treatment outcomes for patients who exhibited such a profile. This current study was an attempt at replicating these findings in a heterogeneous pain population, while also comparing four MMPI-2 profile patterns and five pain categories with various intake and outcome measures.
