Thorberg, Fred A., Young, Ross M., Sullivan, Karen A., Lyvers, Michael, Hurst, Cameron P., Tyssen, Reidar, Connor, Jason P., & Feeney, Gerald F.X. (2013) A confirmatory factor analysis of the Observer Alexithymia Scale in treatment seeking alcohol-dependent patients. Journal of Substance Abuse, 18(6), pp. 492-498.
Confirmatory factor analyses evaluated the factorial validity of the Observer Alexithymia Scale (OAS) in an alcohol-dependent sample. Observation was conducted by clinical psychologists. All models examined were rejected, given their poor fit. Given the psychometric limitations of the OAS shown in this study, the OAS may not be the most appropriate measure to use early in treatment among alcohol-dependent individuals.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
