The model distinguishes between the constructs of global hope and time-specific hope, both of which are multidimensional with affective, cognitive, behavioral, temporal, and contextual domains. Understanding what factors may cause difficulties in coping with a diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment MCI or early stage dementia can be beneficial for care providers and the development of effective supports for affected individuals and their care partners CPs.

British Journal of Psychology Statistical Section ; 3: Given the differences in factor structures across studies, confirmatory factor analysis might help to clarify the underlying structure of the HHI.

Hope therapy in a community sample: Most items were negatively skewed toward agreement with each statement, though adequate variability was demonstrated. Families impacted by cognitive impairment may maintain hope in the face of a potentially progressive illness, regardless of cognitive status.

The satisfaction item uses a 4-point scale ranging from not at all 0 to very 3. While the psychometric properties of wcale HHI have been established in different populations, these properties have not been explored in families impacted by cognitive impairment. Inter-item correlations and item-total correlations were also inspected.

I can see a light in a tunnel. The direction and magnitude of the correlations were examined to draw conclusions regarding the hypotheses.

A larger sample would have also allowed for confirmatory factor analysis to verify the results of the exploratory analysis. My scaoe thoughts on coefficient alpha and successor procedures.

Measuring hope among families impacted by cognitive impairment

The HHI was completed face-to-face with participants as a part of a larger interview battery conducted by trained interviewers, along with questions regarding social support. Benzein E, Berg A. A structured interview guide for the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale.

Along these lines, greater insight and concern about symptom progression in the earliest stages of illness may correspond with lessened hope while in the later stages and when awareness is impaired, hope may be elevated. Making sense of factor analysis: All participants provided informed consent prior to any data collection for the parent study.
