Towards a global score for Implicative Dilemmas [pdf]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
Recent studies reveal that cognitive conflicts can be factors to be considered with respect to the presence of mental disorders and the psychotherapy processes. We have defined different types of internal conflicts according to Personal Construct Theory. One of them is Implicative Dilemmas, which are assessed with the Interpersonal Repertory Grid Technique. Previous studies used the number of Implicative Dilemmas to assess the overall degree of cognitive conflict in a subject, however this measure has important limitations. In this study we compare the number of Implicative Dilemmas with other measures that assess the overall influence of Implicative Dilemmas in mental disorders. We prove that the Proportion of the Implicative Dilemma and the Proportion of the Intensity of Conflict based on Implicative Dilemmas are better measures to assess the amount of conflict in a Repertory Grid. We also test their efficiency for explaining depression severity and global functioning alongside other cognitive facets measured with the Repertory Grid Technique.
