M.A. level social work clinicians self-rated their cognitive reactions & conscious feelings toward a total of 783 patients. Negative self-reported affect was related, inter alia, to patient’s displaying overt psychotic symptoms. Clinicians’ reactions did not enter into the model predicting hospitalization, which included opinion of family & friends, degree of psychopathology, suicidal ideation & lack of social supports as the major predictors of whether or not a patient would be hospitalized.
