Biography

The sample is comprised by patients hospitalized for more than 6 months in the Department of Forensic Psychiatry of the Centro Hospitalar e Universitário de Coimbra, diagnosed as measured by DSM-IV-TR, in the category “Schizophrenia and other Psychotic Disorders”. Of these, we excluded those that according to DSM-IV-TR had a diagnosis of “Mental Retardation” (IQ as measured by WASI - Wechsler Abbreviated Scale of Intelligence) or “Substance Dependence”. Patients were evaluated using PANSS (Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale), SUMD (Scale to Assess Unawareness of Mental Disorders) and TMT (Trail Making Test). Biographical data, type of crime that led to the hospitalization and the security measure applied, was gathered through the review of patient's clinical files.
