The Hierarchical Taxonomy of Psychopathology


Quantitative Methods Workgroup


The charter focuses on studying empirical methods relevant to delineating, testing, and exploring quantitative models of psychopathology.  Such methods will involve applications to both real and simulated data, and tests of internal structure and the external validity of such structures, depending on the specific project. Example foci will include (A) methods for delineating comprehensive hierarchies of individual differences; (B) methods for adjudicating among alternative models of latent variable structure; (C) methods for integrating novel assessment approaches into the study of psychopathology structure.
