The 6 Dimensions of the Fear of Harm (FOH) Phenotype

The lists of symptoms and behaviors you see below describe the Fear of Harm Phenotype. The specific items come from the Child Bipolar Questionnaire; a list of 65 symptoms from bipolar disorder and all of the other disorders considered co-morbid to bipolar disorder. (separation anxiety disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, ADD, obsessive-compulsive disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, and conduct disorder).

Because these are the items which were used in the analyses, they are the items which appear in the final list. It is possible that other symptoms or behaviors are also associated with FOH or that the ones provided could have been described differently. However, the list below is sufficient to have led the investigators through the research and to provide a well understood description of what this syndrome looks like. Lists are just lists. They are guidelines.
