I figured out how to use the quote button - close internet explore, open google chrome lol.
The 'Needs' EMI.
Answers included felt need
and a few more needs
Questions were roughly-- Need standard set by an expert --answer is normative need
Need expressed by person's family -- I think I put expressed need ( it might be expressed or felt need )
Need described by the person himself -- I put felt need .
Felt and expressed needs could be other way round depending on exact wording of the question.
I don't remember Hurler's syndrome question at all--was it a question or a possible answer?
Medication which hits the receptor and then dissociates easily (I think it may have specified D2 receptor)
It gave a list of antipsycotics which included clozapine, and aripiprazole. I think answer is Clozapine.
What is REM latency linked to later in life-
I had no idea about this one and guessed dementia I think. I googled this and saw a link between bipolar disorder and rem sleep latency.
Alpha wave question, was which one statement is true of alpha waves--
Mainly over ? frontal lobe
when close your eyes alpha waves disappear
when relaxed and eyes closed they appear
I am guessing re answer 2 and 3 on whether it said eyes open or closed.
But basically if you knew that alpha waves are present on closing the eyes, and disappear on opening them then the answer was there.
Borderline PD outcome better if you use which mature defence mechanism
? last option --wasn't even a mature defence mechanism
Only sublimation and humour are mature defence mechs--answer was sublimation
What percentage of 10 year old children (or was it boys?) still bed-wet
options - 1% , 5%, 10%, 20% and one more.
I guessed 5%-- checked on google and I got lucky as 5 in correct.
What percentage of prisoners have antisocial pd -- 10, 20,30, 40, 50 (or something like that)
Answer is 50%.
What percentage of all dementias is taken up by Vascular dementia
I put 20-30. (seen it given as 15-20% on spmm and 20-25 elsewhere so wasn't totally sure)
What percentage of people over 65 years age visit their gp in month before suicide-
20, 30, 40, 50, 70. (just approximating the possible answers).
But answer is 70% ---spmm quotes two-thirds at one point and 70% in another sample question.
there was anticipation also which is mature defense mechanism

Defense mechanisms reported by patients with borderline personality disorder and axis II comparison subjects over 16 years of prospective follow-up: description and prediction of recovery.

The authors assessed the defensive functioning of 290 patients with borderline personality disorder and compared it with that of 72 patients with other forms of axis II psychopathology over 16 years of prospective follow-up. They also assessed the relationship between time-varying defenses and recovery from borderline personality disorder.
The Defense Style Questionnaire, a self-report measure with demonstrated criterion validity and internal consistency, was initially administered at study entry. It was readministered at eight contiguous 2-year follow-up periods.
Borderline patients had significantly lower scores than axis II comparison subjects on one mature defense mechanism (suppression) and significantly higher scores on seven of the other 18 defenses studied: one neurotic-level defense (undoing), four immature defenses (acting out, emotional hypochondriasis, passive aggression, and projection), and two image-distorting/borderline defenses (projective identification and splitting). Over the follow-up period, borderline patients showed significant improvement on 13 of the 19 defenses studied, with significantly higher scores over time on one mature defense (anticipation) and significantly lower scores on two neurotic defenses (isolation and undoing), all immature defenses, and all image-distorting/borderline defenses except primitive idealization. In addition, four time-varying defense mechanisms were found to predict time to recovery: humor, acting out, emotional hypochondriasis, and projection.
Taken together, these results suggest that the longitudinal defensive functioning of borderline patients is distinct and improves substantially over time. They also suggest that immature defenses are the best predictor of time to recovery.
