Q Is the newly developed Anxiety Change Expectancy Scale (ACES) effective in measuring efficacy expectancy in people with anxiety disorders?
Canada; timeframe not stated.
Study 1: 202 university undergraduates (72% women; average age 20.2 years) who identified themselves as experiencing difficulties with anxiety. Study 2: 184 individuals (82% women; average age 47.4 years) who responded to newspaper advertisements for people experiencing anxiety problems. Study 3 (clinical sample): 43 individuals with DSM-IV generalised anxiety disorder (79% women; mean age 37.9 years). All participants had at least one comorbid axis I disorder, including social phobia (60%) and major depression (51%).
The ACES, a 20 item self-reporting survey that assesses current anticipation of being able to change an individual’s anxiety level. Each item is scored 1 (strongly disagree) to 5 (strongly agree) on a Likert scale; total scores may range from 20 to 100 (higher scores reflect a greater positive expectancy for changing anxiety).
