BSCQ PRE AND POSTTEST DATA

BSCQ Pre and Posttest Data

At Evolutions Treatment Center we are invested in providing evidenced based clinical interventions. To ensure the efficacy of our practices we conduct pre and post-test assessments with patients to determine treatment outcomes. At the current time we utilize two measures that have strong psychometric properties (The BSCQ and the BASIS-24), which are administered at admission and discharge.

Taken together, these two instruments assess our patient’s confidence level in high risk and potentially triggering situations as well as to examine self-reported change over the course of our co-occurring substance abuse and/or mental health treatment.

This information has been gathered over an extensive period of time and has been amalgamated into simple graphs and is currently being organized into a longitudinal and ongoing research study to ensure the efficacy of our clinical programming and outcomes of our treatment program.

THE BRIEF SITUATIONAL CONFIDENCE QUESTIONNAIRE (BSCQ)

The Brief Situational Confidence Questionnaire (BSCQ) was developed as a state dependent measure to assess self-confidence in varied situations that might evoke cravings or the urge to use substances or alcohol. The eight situations that are assessed include:

  • Negative emotional states

  • Negative physical states

  • Positive emotional states

  • Testing personal control

  • Urges and temptations

  • Interpersonal conflict

  • Social pressure

  • Pleasant times with others

 

 

The individual is asked to assess where their confidence is at in the current moment with regard to resisting the urge to abuse drugs or alcohol in those situations. The score is derived from a Likert scale that measures from no confidence at 0% to totally confident at 100%.

 

The psychometric properties of the Brief Situational Confidence Questionnaire (BSCQ) were determined through studies conducted by the developer of the scale and colleagues (Breslina, Sobell , Sobell & Agrawald, 2000).  Correlation coefficients for the subscales ranged from 0.56 to 0.80 and the Cronbach’s alpha coefficients was 0.85 for the BSCQ indicating a high level of internal consistency for this 8-item instrument (Nunnally, 1970).

Below are the full results of the BSCQ.

BSCQ Total Mean Differences

The overall findings of the Brief Situational Confidence Questionnaire (BSCQ) indicate that when patients first admitted to Evolutions Treatment Center, their overall confidence level in being able to cope with eight different types of problematic situations (Negative emotional states, Negative physical states, Positive emotional states, Testing personal control, Urges and temptations, Interpersonal conflict, Social pressure, Pleasant times with others) was approximately sixty five percent (65.4188). Upon discharge, patients’ overall confidence level in being able to cope with eight different types of problematic situations increased to approximately eighty five percent (85.3825). This difference in confidence was statistically significant when conducting a two tailed paired samples T-Test with a 95% confidence interval.

Unpleasant Emotions Pre-Post Test

This section of the Brief Situational Confidence Questionnaire (BSCQ) indicates that when patients first admitted to Evolutions Treatment Center, their overall confidence level in being able to cope with being depressed with things in general or if everything was going badly for them without relapsing was approximately sixty three percent (63.03) and upon discharge was approximately eighty four percent (84.43). This difference in confidence was statistically significant when conducting a two tailed paired samples T-Test with a 95% confidence interval with an N of 70 paired pre and posttest participants.

Pleasant Emotions Pre-Post Test

This section of the Brief Situational Confidence Questionnaire (BSCQ) indicates that when patients first admitted to Evolutions Treatment Center, their overall confidence level in being able to cope with pleasant emotions, for example if something good happens and they feel like celebrating, or if everything was going well, without relapsing was approximately seventy five percent (75.77) and upon discharge was approximately ninety percent (90.14). This difference in confidence was statistically significant when conducting a two tailed paired samples T-Test with a 95% confidence interval with an N of 70 paired pre and posttest participants.

Testing Control Pre-Post Test

This section of the Brief Situational Confidence Questionnaire (BSCQ) indicates that when patients first admitted to Evolutions Treatment Center, their overall confidence level in being able to cope with the thought that the targeted behavior is no longer a problem for them or if they started to feel confident that they could engage in the behavior without problems, that they could manage these thoughts and feelings without relapsing, was approximately fifty six percent (56.04) and upon discharge was approximately seventy seven percent (77.93). This difference in confidence was statistically significant when conducting a two tailed paired samples T-Test with a 95% confidence interval with an N of 70 paired pre and posttest participants.

Urges and Temptations Pre-Post Test

This section of the Brief Situational Confidence Questionnaire (BSCQ) indicates that when patients first admitted to Evolutions Treatment Center, their overall confidence level in being able to cope with the sudden urge to engage in the behavior they want to change or if they were in a situation where the behavior had occurred or if they began to think how good it was to engage in the behavior again, without relapsing was approximately sixty two percent (62.77) and upon discharge was approximately eighty three percent (83.47). This difference in confidence was statistically significant when conducting a two tailed paired samples T-Test with a 95% confidence interval with an N of 70 paired pre and posttest participants.

Conflict With Others Pre-Post Test

This section of the Brief Situational Confidence Questionnaire (BSCQ) indicates that when patients first admitted to Evolutions Treatment Center, their overall confidence level in being able to cope with conflict with others, like having an argument with a friend or not getting along with co-workers, without relapsing was approximately sixty seven percent (67.70) and upon discharge was approximately eighty six percent (86.22). This difference in confidence was statistically significant when conducting a two tailed paired samples T-Test with a 95% confidence interval with an N of 69 paired pre and posttest participants.
