Non-relativistic phase shifts for a generalized Yukawa potential V(r) = -Vo(e(-alpha r)/r) Vi(e(-2 alpha r)/r(2)) are studied by the amplitude-phase method and by a frequently used analytic method based on a Pekeris-type approximation of power-law potential terms. Small variations of V-1 seem to have marginal effects on the effective potential and on exact phase shifts. However, as pointed out in this study, a Pekeris-type approximation in scattering applications often implies serious distortions of both effective potentials and phase shifts. The Pekeris-type based analytic approximation in this study seems to give low-quality scattering results for this model potential at low energies.
