Abstract

The relationships between mood disorders, cognitive patterns, and personality disorders were investigated in a sample of 109 major depression-recurrent, bipolar, and medical patients. Cognitive patterns, which were assessed by the Automatic Thoughts Questionnaire (ATQ) and the Self-Control Schedule (SCS), were submitted to factor analyses along with other variables of interest in order to identify their mutual relationship. The resulting scores from the cognitive scales were differently related to Axis I and II diagnoses. Cognitive distortions as measured by the SCS did appear to be linked to Axis I diagnosis, whereas the ones measured by the ATQ did not show such a link and were conditioned by the presence of Cluster B personalities.
