Background: The effect of the Norwegian General Practice-Nursing Home (NorGeP-NH) criteria has never been tested on clinical outcomes in nursing home (NH) residents. We performed a cluster-randomized trial in Norwegian NHs and tested the effect of NorGeP-NH on QoL (primary outcome), medication prescriptions, and physical and mental health (seconda...

We investigated differences in judges' attitudes between court-appointed and party-appointed forensic psychiatric expert evidence, including who commissioned the report and how this impacted on the judges' perception of the evidence presented.

Artikkelen presenterer to studier om juristers og rettspsykiatrisk sakkyndiges syn på hverandres oppgaver og fremtreden i retten. I 2011 svarte 157 straffe- rettsjurister og 107 rettspsykiatrisk sakkyndige på et spørreskjema, og denne artikkelen er en oppsummering av våre funn, som er internasjonalt publisert. Undersøkelsene viser at strafferettsju...

Numerous meta-analyses and reviews have been conducted on the effectiveness of psychological treatment of sexual offenders in reducing recidivism, but no meta-analysis has been done on sexual offenders against children (SOAC) specifically. A moderate treatment effect has been shown in several evaluations of general sexual offenders, while many scho...

We examined forensic psychiatric experts' experiences in providing court testimony and their cooperation with legal professionals, with 147 forensic psychiatric experts (psychologists and psychiatrists) responding to an online survey. Most experts reported that they liked their work, and were satisfied with their cooperation with the court, though...
Article
As a continuation of a previous study (Grondahl, Gronnerod, & Sexton, 2009), we examined how 120 laypersons and 35 forensic experts (14 psychiatrists and 21 psychologists) differed in their judgment processes of forensic case vignettes. The vignettes contained descriptions of three components, namely social history, psychiatric history and criminal...

Rettsforhandlingene etter terroren 22. juli er avsluttet og Norsk rettspsykiatri er gjenstand for debatt som aldri før. I denne debatten savner vi en prinsipiell drøfting av strafferettslig rettspsykiatri og dagens utilregnelighetsregler. Vi foreslår her ti konkrete tiltak til forbedring av rettspsykiatrisk virksomhet. Men gratis blir det ikke.
Article
Behaviorism and psychodynamic psychology have been regarded as polar opposites. Contrary to popular belief, B. F. Skinner took an interest in Freud and many of his concepts, and agreed to be tested with the Rorschach method and the Thematic Apperception Test by Roe in her study of scientists (Roe, 195326. Roe , A. 1953. The making of a scientist,...
Article
All available studies on the Wartegg Zeichen Test (WZT; Wartegg, 1939) were collected and evaluated through a literature overview and a meta-analysis. The literature overview shows that the history of the WZT reflects the geographical and language-based processes of marginalization where relatively isolated traditions have lived and vanished in dif...
Article
B. F. Skinner is consistently rated as one of the most important figures in the history of psychology. Much has been said about his character, some of it strongly negative. Yet little is known about what kind of man he really was. Drawing on information from published sources, archival material, and people who knew him, we used "blind" raters to as...
Article
A new scoring system called RN-Rorschach was developed in Norway to provide a simple system focusing on clinical usefulness, with acceptable psychometric properties and with a high level of compatibility with the Comprehensive System (CS). The Rorschach method is a demanding method, and the CS may be too complex for learning the basic aspects of th...
Article
We tested whether the judgment of forensic psychiatric experts differed from that of laypersons. We constructed 18 case vignettes that were rated by 21 psychologists, 14 psychiatrists, and 126 laypeople on the following variables: Insanity by Legal Terms, Risk of Repeated Offense, and Need of Treatment. We found significant differences among laypeo...

We examined discriminant and convergent validity of theoretically relevant Rorschach Comprehensive System (CS) variables (Exner, 2003) and Meloy and Gacono's (1992) aggression variables in distinguishing between imprisoned violent offenders (VO) who were psychopathic (P-VO) and nonpsychopathic (NP-VO) under psychiatric treatment, schizophrenic inpa...

I reanalyzed the Grønnerød (2003) Rorschach temporal stability meta-analysis data with a theoretically driven hierarchical regression analysis. I also examined the intrarater reliability of initial coding decisions and verified their consistency. In the new regression analyses, retest period strengthened its influence on stability, whereas methodol...

I examined Rorschach assessment of personality changes following psychotherapy. I conducted a comprehensive literature search to find all studies using the Rorschach method at least twice for the same participant in connection with psychotherapy. I conducted meta-analyses for 38 samples, and I performed regression analyses to identify moderating fa...

The temporal stabilities of the Rorschach method scoring systems were investigated. A comprehensive literature search was conducted to find all test-retest studies, both regular and from control samples in therapy evaluation studies. Meta-analyses were conducted for samples, individual entries, and variables in 36 samples. Separate analyses were ma...
Article
A standardized estimation of Rorschach interrater agreement is needed. Percentage agreement, although widely used, is found to be unsuitable. Forty-one protocols from adults in both a normal and a psychiatric sample were scored by two or three scorers, making 85 scoring pairs. Percentage agreement, correlations (phi and Pearson’s r), and kappa were...
