Abstract

This study evaluated the Psychiatric Rehabilitation Beliefs, Goals, and Practices Scale's (PRBGP) sensitivity to change. A training curriculum in the current principles and practices of Psychiatric Rehabilitation was given to 301 practitioners in Pennsylvania. Participants completed the PRBGP Scale prior to and immediately following the two-day, twelve-hour training workshop. The training curriculum was expected to convey a substantial amount of information to these participants. The comparison between the pre-training and post-training PRBGP Scale scores of the participants found a significant and substantial difference. The PRBGP Scale reflected the expected changes in the participants' information levels. This study concluded that the PRBGP Scale was sensitive to change, and it provided a reliable and valid means of assessing the effectiveness of educational curricula in psychiatric rehabilitation.
