Abstract


Gordon’s (2001) study of the high reactivity of the MMPI/MMPI-2 to long-term psychoanalytic psychotherapy did not include effect sizes and correlations. These are now included for use in meta-analyses.  Fifty-five polysymptomatic outpatients mostly at the borderline level were tested at the beginning and end of treatment.   After M = 38.8 months (SD = 17.1) of treatment, scales F, Hs, D, Hy, Pd, Pt, Sc, Ma, and A, all significantly decreased with a range of Cohen’s d fromDepression (-1.24), Anxiety (-1.24) and Psychasthenia (-1.23) to the lowest significant scale decrease- Hypomania (-.41) .  Scales K (resiliency) and Es (ego strength), increased significantly (Cohen’s d = .77 and .80 respectively).

Key words: long-term psychoanalytic psychotherapy- LTPP, psychodynamic, MMPI, MMPI-2, outcome measure, effectiveness
