The Psychiatric Rehabilitation Beliefs, Goals, and Practices Scale: sensitivity to change.

Author information

Department of Psychiatric Rehabilitation, University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, USA.


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.
