Abstract

In an attempt to replicate the factor structure of symptom distress re- ported by Mattsson et al. in their study of 404 anxious neurotic outpatients, the same 68-item pretreatment self-report Symptom Check List was administered to an independent but clinically similar sample of 1,116 patients. Using an identical factor-analytic procedure, five useful factors were extracted: Neurotic Feelings, Somatization, Performance Difficulty, Fear-Anxiety, and Depression. Four of these factors were almost identical to those reported by Mattsson e t al. while the fifth factor, Depression, seemed to represent a composite of the two small Depression factors (Anxious and Somatic) found in the earlier study. This minor discrepancy was discussed and the future research potential of these factors was indicated.
