Abstract
Objective: Cognitive behavioral theory provides a theoretical framework for understanding the etiology and persistence of pathological drinking, and a conceptual basis for developing clinical techniques to treat the disorder. In line with this scope, we aimed to investigate the cognitive properties of alcohol dependence.
Mehod: Two grups composed of seventy-nine inpatients with a diagnosis of alcohol dependence and alcohol use but not alcoholic healthy controls were included in this study. Dysfunctional attitudes scale (DAS) was given to both groups for detection of dysfunctional cognition. At the same time, patients group screened with the SCID I and II. The data were evaluated using SPSS 17.
Results: DAS total scores and subscale scores that perfectionist attitude and need for approval were significantly higher in patients than in controls. In addition, a significant correlation was detected between DAS total scores, and the age of emergence of alcohol dependence.
Conclusion: The results of the study, in a manner consistent with the literature, have found that alcohol dependent have dysfunctional belief. In particular, a relation was detected between alcohol dependence with perfectionist attitude and need for approval.

Key words: cognitive, alcohol, dependence



Alkol Bağımlılarında İşlevsel Olmayan İnançlar: Karşılaştırmalı Bir Çalışma

Ozet
Amaç: Bilişel davranışçı teori, alkolizmde patolojik içme davranışının ortaya çıkma ve sürme nedenlerinin anlaşılması için teorik bir çerçeve sunmasının yanında, bu bozukluğu tedavi edecek kinik teknik için kavramsal bir dayanak sunmaktadır. Bu kapsam doğrultusunda planladığımız çalışmada alkol bağımlılarında bilişsel özelliklerin araştırılması amaçlanmıştır.
Yöntem: Çalışmaya alkol bağımlılığı tanısıyla yatmakta olan 79 hasta ve bağımlı olmayan ancak alkol kullanımı olan sağlıklı kontrollerden oluşan 2 grup dahil edildi. İşlevsel olmayan bilişsel özelliklerin saptanması için her iki gruba da fonksiyonel olmayan tutumlar (FOTÖ) ölçeği verilirken hasta grubuna ayrıca SCID I ve II taraması yapıldı. Veriler SPSS 17 programında değerlendirildi.
Bugular: FOTÖ toplam puanları ile mükemmeliyetçi tutum ve onaylanma ihtiyacı alt ölçek puanları, hasta grubunda kontrol grubuna göre anlamlı şekilde yüksek bulunmuştur.
Ayrıca FOTÖ toplam puanları ve alkol bağımlılığının ortaya çıkma yaşı arasında da anlamlı ilişki saptanmıştır.
Tartışma: Çalışma sonuçları literatürle uyumlu bir biçimde alkol bağımlılarının bilişsel olarak işlevsel olmayan inançlara sahip olduğu sonucuna ulaşmıştır. Özellikle de mükemmeliyetçi tutum ve onaylanma ihtiyacı ile alkol bağımlılığı arasında ilişki saptanmıştır.

Anahtar Kelimeler: bilişsel, alkol, bağımlılık
