Goldberg, after whom some psychiatric tests are named, might be one of two psychiatrists who share the same last name:
- Ivan Goldberg, an American psychiatrist; and
- Sir David Goldberg, a British psychiatrist.
Psychiatric screening tests generally do not substitute getting help from professionals.
Tests Developed by Ivan K. Goldberg
- Goldberg Depression Test is an 18-question screening tool for depression.
- Goldberg Mania Scale is an 18-question screening test for mania.
Tests developed by Sir David Goldberg
- General Health Questionnaire or Goldberg Health Questionnaire (GHQ):
- Developed in 1972 in its initial format as a 60-question test (GHQ-60) with a four-point scale for each question.
- It is used to measure the risk of developing psychiatric disorders.
- Other forms of GHQ are:
- GHQ-28; and
- Together with Simpson, they developed Personal Health Questionnaire (PHQ) in 1995.
- It is a 10-question screening instrument for depression.
- It should not be confused with the 9-question patient health questionnaire (PHQ-9) developed by Spitzer also to quantify the risk for depression.
- Personal Health Questionnaire is sometimes abbreviated as PHQ-G to differentiate it from PHQ-9.
