Hopelessness Among Later-life Patients
Trenteseau J A~~et al
Studies the relationship of hopelessness (HLN) to depression & general behavior, the relative contribution of HLN to known hospital variables in treatment with respect to behavior & suicidal factors & the influence of high & low-level HLN on depression variables, behavior & suicidal factors. Results show HLN is related to depression & it also adds to hospital information for total behavior. High & low-level HLN patients differ on psychological depression & behavior but not on suicidal indexes.
