Abstract [en]

Twenty-seven adolescents in psychiatric care, assessed by means of DSM-IV, and 33 healthy controls were tested using the projective percept-genetic Defense Mechanism Test (DMT). Three diagnostic subgroups were created: psychotic (Axis 1), borderline personality disorder (Axis 2), and a non-patient group. The test protocols were scored with regard to 130 DMT variables and analyzed by means of partial least squares (PLS) discriminant analysis and by means of a pattern analysis of the DMT variables. The results showed that it was possible to distinguish significantly among the three groups. Specific perceptual distortions were identified among the three groups. It was concluded that DMT is a promising instrument in the assessment of adolescents in psychiatric care.
