  • does the white racial identity Attitude Scale measure racial identity
    Journal of Counseling Psychology, 1997
    Co-Authors: John T Behrens

    Abstract:

    Competing interpretations of the structure of the White Racial Identity Attitude Scale (WRIAS; J. E. Helms & R. T. Carter, 1990) were assessed in 2 investigations. First, a meta-analysis of Scale intercorrelations and internal reliability estimates indicated that, after correction for measurement error, intercorrelations between some Scales were equal to unity, suggesting that the structure of the WRIAS is less complex than the theory of White racial identity it is assumed to measure. Second, confirmatory factor analysis of 2 data sets likewise revealed that Scale structures found in the data are more parsimonious than those suggested by theory. Although it remains unclear which construct or constructs are actually measured by the instrument, interpretations of the WRIAS as composed of 5 meaningful dimensions are unsupported.

  • the management of aggression and violence Attitude Scale mavas a cross national comparative study
    Journal of Advanced Nursing, 2008
    Co-Authors: Joy Duxbury, Sabine Hahn, Ian Needham, David Pulsford

    Abstract:

    Title. The Management of Aggression and Violence Attitude Scale (MAVAS): a cross-national comparative study.

    Aim.  This paper is a report of a study to determine the transferability of the Management of Aggression and Violence Attitude Scale to European mental health inpatient settings.

    Background.  Incidents of patient aggression and violence are common in psychiatric in-patient facilities, and nurses’ Attitudes may play a part in how they are managed.

    Methods.  Nursing staff from acute psychiatric in-patient units in Switzerland and the United Kingdom completed the Management of Aggression and Violence Attitude Scale. Data were collected in the UK in 2001 and Switzerland in 2003. The Swiss sample comprised 75 respondents: 45 female, mean age 36·24, mean experience 7·35 years, 60 Registered Nurses. The United Kingdom sample was 75 respondents: 58 female, mean age 32, mean experience 5·25 years, 48 Registered Nurses. T-tests identified differences between the groups in their responses to each Management of Aggression and Violence Attitude Scale statement.

    Results.  There was 66% concordance of views between the groups. Swiss nurses were, however, more likely to regard factors internal to the patient as contributory to aggression while United Kingdom nurses perceived environmental factors to be more important. Both groups endorsed physical means of aggression management, Swiss nurses more so.

    Conclusion.  There are both commonalities and differences between the Attitudes of Swiss and United Kingdom nursing staff regarding patient aggression. Differences may relate to rates of aggression, variations in management approaches, training and policy. The Management of Aggression and Violence Attitude Scale is a potentially effective tool for making comparisons about perspectives on patient aggression.

  • testing a new tool the management of aggression and violence Attitude Scale mavas
    Nurse Researcher, 2003
    Co-Authors: Joy Duxbury

    Abstract:

    Perhaps due to the complexities of the problem of aggression and violence, and to ethical issues relating to the mental health areas where much of the work is focused, it is the perspective of staff working in those areas that is most commonly sought in research studies. In contrast, tools to examine the patient’s view are rare. In this paper Joy Duxbury describes the piloting and development of a new tool, which aimed to survey the views of both patients and staff about the broader approaches used to manage patient aggression. This became the ‘Management of Aggression and Violence Attitude Scale‘ (MAVAS), and the testing of this tool is the focus of this paper. Language: en
