  • Psychometric properties of the Disability Identity Development Scale:
           Confirmatory factor and bifactor analyses.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose/Objective: This work provides comprehensive analyses targeting the factor structure and dimensionality of the Disability Identity Development Scale (DIDS). In Forber-Pratt et al., 2020, disability was defined broadly to include individuals with visible or hidden disabilities across many disability groups (i.e., physical, intellectual, learning, or chronic illness). Research Method/Design: Retained items from previous exploratory factor analysis were administered to a sample of adults with disabilities (n = 1,126) ranging in age from 18–78 years. Confirmatory factor analytics (CFA) including traditional CFA, and bifactor confirmatory analyses were used to examine the dimensionality and structure of the DIDS. Results: Traditional CFA provided lack of evidence in support of the oblique four-factor structure previously reported. Bifactor confirmatory analysis revealed items on the DIDS are consistent with unidimensional, and to a lesser degree multidimensional solutions (i.e., items lacked a level of content diversity to substantiate a complex, reliable multifactor structure). Discussion/Conclusion: Analytic results on the DIDS revealed reasonable psychometric properties as a measure of disability identity. Our results support using a sum or total score of disability identity. Results of this work are an important contribution to a growing body of literature supporting, and investigating, disability identity development. Furthermore, the DIDS measure with its resulting composite score of disability identity has the potential to inform clinicians in the field of rehabilitation psychology as well as informing future targeted interventions.

  • Perceptions of function and recovery among persons with stroke and care
           partners.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose/Objective: Perceptions of function can differ between persons with stroke and care partners. The current study described the frequency of discrepancy in ratings of poststroke functioning across romantic partners and examined associations between perceptions of function, depressive symptoms, and caregiver strain. Research Method/Design: A secondary analysis was conducted using data from the baseline visit of an intervention pilot study. Twenty-nine dyads completed measures of perceived current functioning of the person with stroke (Stroke Impact Scale 3.0: overall percent recovery, ADL, and cognition), self-reported ratings of depressive symptoms for both partners (PROMIS Depression Short Form v8b), and self-reported caregiver strain for the care partners only (Caregiver Strain Index). Results: A discrepancy of over 10 points on the SIS 3.0 variables was seen in over 50% of dyads for all subscales, with care partners rating worse recovery on average. Actor partner interdependence models showed that more depressive symptoms were associated with perceptions of worse overall recovery and ADL function in persons with stroke, whereas more depressive symptoms were associated with perceptions of worse cognitive and ADL function in care partners. Discrepancy in perception of ADL function was associated with more caregiver strain though this was inextricable from the overall level of impairment in ADL function perceived by the care partner. Conclusions/Implications: These findings suggest that discrepancy in perceptions of stroke recovery among romantic partners is common. This underscores the importance of perception when considering risk for depression and caregiver strain as well as how to best promote psychological resilience following stroke.

  • The relationship between stigma and mental health in a population of
           individuals with COVID-19.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose: Illness stigma has been observed across previous outbreaks including Ebola, SARS, HIV/AIDS, and now COVID-19. Although both the stigma of having COVID-19 as well as mental health impacts of COVID-19 have been studied, limited research exists regarding the relationship of stigma and mental health in this population. Thus, the primary purpose of the present study was to examine the relationship between stigma and mental health in adults with COVID-19. Method: Adult respondents with a diagnosis of COVID-19 (N = 632) completed an online questionnaire distributed between April 17, 2020, and April 18, 2021. The study measures included the Patient Health Questionnaire 8 (PHQ-8), the Generalized Anxiety Disorder 7-item (GAD-7), and the 8-Item Stigma Scale for Chronic Illness (SSCI-8) tailored to measure perceived stigmatization from a COVID-19 diagnosis. Results: Participants (mean age = 51) were mostly female (71%), White (73%), married (70%), obese (56%), and had a chronic health condition (56%). Female sex, education status, working from home or not working owing to COVID-19, previous mental health diagnosis, history of chronic illness, and being a current/former smoker were associated with higher stigma scores, whereas older age and Black race were associated with lower stigma scores. Conclusions: Greater stigma and psychological distress was observed in females with a previously diagnosed psychiatric illness and/or chronic health condition. Our findings suggest a disproportionate burden of mental health/psychiatric symptoms/sequelae, including stigma and PTSD, among COVID-19 survivors with a history of mental illness. Further studies are needed to fully characterize COVID-19 related stigma and subsequent mental health experiences. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2022 APA, all rights reserved)

  • The impact of a structured rehabilitation program for uninsured
           individuals.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose/Objective: Health disparities in rehabilitation have been identified in brain injury (BI), spinal cord injury (SCI), stroke, and amputee populations. A free clinic was established to serve such uninsured individuals. The purpose of this exploratory study was to characterize the sample of patients attending a free rehabilitation clinic by investigating their demographics, access to care, trends in quality of life, and satisfaction with the rehabilitation program. Method/Design: This is a retrospective chart review of data from 15 individuals admitted to the free clinic program who were administered an admission questionnaire, the abbreviated World Health Organization Quality of Life assessment (WHOQOL-BREF), and a postcare assessment survey. Results: A majority of patients reported not having a primary care provider nor a checkup within the past 5 years. This sample also reported extensive physical needs at admission. Seventy-three percent of the sample improved on the WHOQOL-BREF physical domain by discharge with a large effect size. The psychological, social, and environmental domain scores did not show a reliable pattern of change in this sample. Conclusions/Implication: These results support previously noted gaps in care among individuals with BI, SCI, stroke, and amputation and suggest that a monthly clinic can improve physical quality of life. This exploratory study aims to lay the foundation for future research that is needed to understand the factors that exclude these individuals from the health care system and to help key stakeholders to advocate for these patients and improve their early access to rehabilitation care.

  • Measuring behavior change technique delivery and receipt in physical
           activity behavioral interventions.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose/Objective: Research on physical activity behavioral support has mainly focused on measuring the absence or presence of behavior change techniques (BCTs) delivered by a counselor. We present a method to measure BCT delivery and receipt in physical activity behavioral support interventions. Research Method/Design: The method was developed and tested using transcripts from behavior change counseling sessions delivered as part of a theory- and evidence-based physical activity intervention for adults with disabilities. Using existing methods, a new method was developed to code counselor and clients’ verbal statements (BCTs and other statements). Two coders independently coded 30 transcripts of audio-recorded counseling sessions. Interrater reliability was assessed using percentage agreement and Prevalence Adjusted Bias Adjusted Kappa (PABAK). Results: Forty-eight codes were developed for counselor statements (35 BCT delivery and 13 other statements) and 46 codes for client statements (34 BCT receipt and 12 other statements). The average interrater reliability was considered nearly perfect for the counselor statements (84% agreement; PABAK = .98) and client statements (86% agreement; PABAK = .98). The BCT delivered and received were most frequently related to Goals and Planning (counselor:36%, client:35%), Support Strategies (counselor:21%, client:17%) and Self Belief (counselor:13%, client:24%). Conclusions/Implications: This study presents a reliable coding method to measure BCT delivery and receipt in physical activity behavioral support interventions. The method can be used to enhance intervention fidelity assessment and study interactions between counselors and clients with and without disabilities. Measuring and evaluating BCT delivery and receipt can provide new insights into what types of behavioral support work best under which circumstances.

  • How environmental and psychological factors interact with travel
           participation after spinal cord injury.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose/Objective: Spinal cord injury (SCI) usually causes neurological impairment, which can make traveling to places challenging. The ability to travel is nevertheless essential for societal participation, and full participation of persons in society after SCI is a key indicator of successful rehabilitation. Research has widely documented lowered level of participation of people living with SCI. To offer insights for effective intervention, the study aims to examine how psychological and environmental factors influence participation in travel related activities after SCI. Based on the self-determination theory (SDT) and the literature in participation research, the study proposed a model depicting the interrelationships among travel barriers, travel need satisfaction, travel motivation and participation of people with SCI in travel-related activities. Research Method/Design: Cross-sectional quantitative data were collected from 250 individuals enrolled in a SCI model system. Results: Path analysis reveals significant negative effect of travel barriers on respondents’ need satisfaction for autonomy, which in turn affects controlled motivation (introjected and external) and amotivation. Only external motivation leads to participation in travel while amotivation negatively influences travel participation. Travel barriers were found to indirectly influence travel participation through need satisfaction for autonomy, external motivation and amotivation. Conclusions/Implications: Although people have high intrinsic motivation for travel, they do not travel for fun as much as for external motivations after SCI. Travel barriers can lower people’s need satisfaction for autonomy, which results more travel for external motivation. The study provides preliminary evidence supporting an SDT-based travel participation model after SCI. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2022 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Exploring associations of psychological inflexibility with depressive
           symptoms, anxiety, and stress in individuals living with a spinal cord
           injury: A cross-sectional study.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose/Objective: This study explored associations of psychological inflexibility with depressive symptoms, anxiety, and stress in individuals living with spinal cord injuries (SCI). Research Method/Design: The study used a cross-sectional design involving data of self-reported questionnaires collected from 92 adults with SCI in the United States. These questionnaires included measures of depressive symptoms, anxiety, and stress as the dependent variables and measures of potential independent variables, including demographic and SCI-related variables, psychological inflexibility, pain interference, independence, and ability to participate in and satisfaction with social roles and activities. Multivariable linear regression analyses were conducted. Stepwise method, forward selection, and backward elimination procedures, supplemented with the best subsets method, were used to obtain the most parsimonious set of independent variables for each of the depressive symptoms, anxiety, and stress scores. Results: The current study showed that psychological inflexibility, employment status, and time since the injury were variables significantly associated with depressive symptoms, and that psychological inflexibility and ethnicity/race were variables significantly associated with anxiety. Psychological inflexibility was the only variable significantly associated with stress. Conclusions: Findings of the present study suggest the importance of psychological flexibility in depressive symptoms, anxiety, and stress in individuals with SCI by showing significant associations among these variables. This exploratory study informs the need for further studies involving interventions that aim to foster greater psychological flexibility, which may decrease mental health problems in individuals with SCI.

  • Predictors of individual quality of life in young people with Down
           syndrome.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose/Objective: Although the concept of quality of life (QoL) has become a reference framework for the provision of support and services to people with intellectual disability (ID), its conceptualization and application for persons with Down syndrome (DS) have received little attention. This study analyzed QoL outcomes in children and young people with DS and examined the influence of several individual and environmental variables on QoL. Research Method/Design: A cross-sectional study was conducted. Participants were 404 children and young people with DS aged 4 to 21 who were users of 73 organizations providing services to people with ID. The KidsLife-Down Scale was used to assess QoL-related personal outcomes perceived by professionals and relatives. Descriptive statistics were calculated. Correlation coefficients were computed and multiple regression analyses were conducted for each QoL domain and for the composite score. Results: The highest scores were obtained in material well-being, physical well-being, and rights, whereas the lowest scores were observed in self-determination and social inclusion. Multiple regression analyses showed that age, level of ID, level of support needs, degree of dependency, type of schooling, and size of organization were predicting factors of scores in QoL domains. Conclusions: This study underlines priority areas and relevant variables that must be considered when planning, implementing, and assessing supports and services to improve the QoL of children and young people with DS.

  • A brief report examining the stereotype content model with blind
           Americans.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose/Objective: The stereotype content model is a unifying theory of the makeup of stereotypes and their consequences on emotions and behaviors. There is a need to study this theory from the perspectives of those most affected by them—targets of stereotypes. Research Method/Design: Blind adults (n = 264) living in the United States completed the stereotype content measure asking participants to rate the extent to which they believed members of wider society held certain beliefs about Blind persons. Results: Confirmatory factor analyses showed good fit for the four-factor model of stereotype content: warmth, competence, status, and competition. Conclusions: This study confirms the stereotype content model and begins to extend the stereotype content model to be inclusive of the perspectives of those who are the targets of stereotypes.

  • Deaf and hard of hearing plus: Preliminary estimates of child and parent
           functioning.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose/Objective: Children who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH) with additional special needs (“DHHPlus”) have complex differences in psychological development that, when combined with aspects of their environment, often place them at an increased risk for psychological challenges. Further, their combination of special needs places unique demands on their parents. Despite the high proportion of DHH children in this particular subgroup, little research has been done to identify estimates of broad psychological functioning, the parent–child relationship, parent stressors, and parent satisfaction with resources independent of other samples. This study addresses that gap through collecting preliminary data on broad psychological functioning and related parent–child variables in a sample of children who are DHHPlus. Research Method/Design: Thirty-one primary caregivers of children who were DHH with additional medical and/or mental health diagnoses completed several questionnaires about their child and family, including the Behavior Assessment System for Children (BASC-3) Parent Rating Scale, BASC-2 Parenting Relationship Questionnaire, and Family Stress Scale. The current DHHPlus sample was separated into two subgroups by age, including a preschool group (ages 2–5 years, n = 14) and child group (ages 6–11, n = 17) for visual comparison of mean scores with respective normative and clinical samples from each measure. Results: When compared to normative and clinical samples, parents of DHHPlus children endorsed more concerns about their child’s behavior, adaptive skills, the parent–child relationship, and higher levels of family-related stress, with a unique rank order of family stressors. Conclusions/Implications: Results provide initial child and parent estimates to support assessment and treatment services for this diverse and underserved population.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose/Objective: Emerging research has highlighted sources of magnified stress and trauma for people with disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic, as compared to others in the general population. However, little research has examined the mental health impact of the pandemic on people with disabilities in relation to disability-related stigma, social isolation, and demographic characteristics. The present study therefore sought to identify predictors of depression and anxiety symptoms among U.S. adults with disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic. Research Method/Design: Data were collected online between October and December 2020. U.S. adults with disabilities (n = 441) completed self-report measures of depression, anxiety, psychosocial processes, and a range of demographic and disability characteristics. Results: In our sample, 61.0% and 50.0% of participants met criteria for a probable diagnosis of major depressive disorder and generalized anxiety disorder, respectively. Participants also experienced significantly higher levels of disability-related stigma and social isolation compared to prepandemic norms. Hierarchical regression analyses identified higher social isolation, presence of chronic pain, younger age, higher disability-related stigma, and higher worries about contracting COVID-19 as significant predictors of both depression and anxiety symptoms. Conclusion/Implications: This study highlights important demographic and psychosocial predictors of mental health risks for people with disabilities in the context of COVID-19. Findings further underscore the need to attend to those at elevated risk within the disability community as rehabilitation professionals, disability organizations, and policy makers work to support people with disabilities in postpandemic recovery and create a more equitable response to ongoing and future public health crises.

  • Health care providers’ perspectives on resilience and positive
           adjustment within the spinal cord injury population.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose/Objective: Spinal cord injury (SCI) often represents a significant life change, yet most individuals with SCI show resilience and positive adjustment after injury. Social support, including support from health care providers, has been associated with increased resilience among the SCI population. This study aimed to further understand health care providers’ perceptions of resilience in their SCI patients, as patient–provider relationships can impact health care outcomes and overall health and well-being. Research Method/Design: Eighty-four health care providers from a Veterans Health Administration SCI service in California participated in this study. Using a cross-sectional survey design, a 22-item questionnaire was created to explore health care providers’ perceptions of resilience and positive adjustment among the SCI population. Results: Overall, 44% of participants accurately stated that 60% of the SCI population shows resilience. However, 62%–67% reported significant levels of mental health symptoms and 48% indicated poor adjustment following SCI. Eighty percent believed that quality of life is dependent on level of injury. Conclusions/Implications: Results highlighted discrepancies between providers’ perceptions and the current literature on resilience and SCI. Specifically, while many acknowledge resilience within this population, many providers indicated significant levels of mental health concerns and poor adjustment following an SCI. Due to the impact health care providers have on patient care, and research linking positive support from health care providers to resilience in SCI, further understanding of these misperceptions and biases is critical. Suggestions for providers to address potential biases and misperceptions, and ultimately strengthen the provider–patient relationship, are provided.

  • Received Social Support Scale for Persons with Serious Mental Illness:
           Preliminary scale development and validation study.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose/Objective: This study investigated the psychometric properties of a newly developed Received Social Support Scale for Persons with Serious Mental Illness (rSSS-SMI). The rSSS-SMI measures three support domains: Day-to-Day Living support, Mental Health Support, and Adherence Support. Research Method/Design: (a) to examine the item quality of the rSSS-SMI, (b) to investigate the construct validity and verify the dimensionality of the rSSS-SMI, and (c) to investigate the reliability and validity of the rSSS-SMI scores. A sample of 267 community-based case management service recipients with SMI completed the rSSS-SMI and three additional scales (Interpersonal Support Evaluation List—Short Form [ISEL-12]; Symptom Checklist-6 [SCL-6]; Satisfaction with Life Scale [SWLS]). Results: Three items were dropped from the scale resulting in a 21-item scale. Confirmatory factor analysis and Item Response Theory analyses revealed our proposed three-factor model fit the data best, with average loadings at .74 (SD = .09). The three-factor model had higher item discrimination and item difficulty parameters than the one-factor model. The rSSS-SMI achieved strong internal consistency with estimates of .94 (full scale), .83 (Day-to-Day Living Support), .84 (Mental Health Support) and .76 (Adherence Support). The three-week interval test–retest reliability coefficient was .59. Convergent and discriminant validity evidence revealed a small, positive correlation between the rSSS-SMI and perceived support (ISEL-12) and symptom distress (SCL-6) and a small, negative, nonsignificant relationship with life satisfaction (SWLS). Conclusion: This study provides preliminary reliability and validity evidence for the rSSS-SMI and confirms our proposed three-factor structure (Day-to-Day Living Support, Mental Health Support, Adherence Support).

  • Rehabilitation psychology: 2020 state of the field survey.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose/Objective: To date, there are no published formal surveys of the “state of the field” of Rehabilitation Psychology in terms of education, training, practice patterns, professional identity, and relative salary and income structures for those who identify as Rehabilitation Psychologists. Research Method/Design: In an effort to gather this information, the Practice Committee of APA Division 22 (Rehabilitation Psychology) conducted a convenience-sample survey of its listserv subscribers to obtain a representation of Rehabilitation Psychologists across the United States, and a depiction of the fields in which they work. Results: There were 282 respondents to the survey. Most respondents were female (69%) and worked in hospital/medical facilities (70%). Most worked in urban/suburban areas (96%), with adults (57%), and had a straight salary income structure (78%). Salary was found to be associated with age (p < .001), gender (p < .001), degree (p = .001), board certification status (p < .001), years licensed (p < .001), and Manager/Director position status (p < .001). Salary was not significantly different by region. Conclusions: Implications regarding the need for advocacy for the roles of Rehabilitation Psychology in health care, promotion of the specialty with consumers, and the development of future professionals are discussed.
