Mª del Carmen García Pérez, Cristina Jenaro Río, Noelia Flores Robaina
We present the results obtained after assessing the psychological functioning of 150 participants with severe and prolonged mental illness. For the assessment we utilized the Luria-DNA Battery and the Wechsler Scale for the Assessment of Adult Intelligence (WAIS). Specifically, we aim to: (1) provide data on the concurrent validity of the Luria-DNA battery through the study of correlations between the battery and the WAIS. (2) Analyze the impact of clinical variables in the psychological performance of these patients, (3) obtain a neuropsychological performance profile. The results support the reliability and validity of the battery and its usefulness in neuropsychological assessment of patients with schizophrenia. The results obtained allow us to offer suggestions to improve the provision of supports.
