Psychiatry related information on SLAMF8

  • Psychometric and factor analysis revealed a 47-item composite scale and three internally consistent factors that were uncorrelated with social desirability: Social/Character Disparagement, Physical/Romantic Unattractiveness, and Weight Control/Blame [1].
  • RESULTS: Six separate and reliable domains were identified: Perceived Self-Efficacy, System Support, Blame Victim, Professional Role Resistance/Fear of Offending Patient, Victim/Provider Safety, and Frequency of DV Inquiry. We found item domain Cronbach alpha to be acceptable, ranging from 0.73 to 0.91 [2].
  • These dimensions were Perfectionism, Negativism, Blame Proneness, Escapism, Anxious Over Concern, and Absolute Demands [3].
  • Deconstructing dyslexia. Blame it on the written word [4].
