The Beck Hopelessness Scale (BHS) helps you measure 3 major aspects of hopelessness:
- Feelings about the future
- Loss of motivation
It is designed to measure an individual's attitudes about their long-term future and consists of 20 true/false items with patients either endorsing a pessimistic statement or denying an optimistic statement. The BHS acts as a powerful predictor of suicidal intent.
Average reliability coefficient: .92
Test-retest reliability: .69
Scoring and Reporting with Q-global
Q-global™ is Pearson’s new web based platform for scoring and reporting. It’s accessible anytime, from any computer connected to the Internet. Secure and affordable, this system helps you quickly and automatically organise information, generate scores, and produce accurate, comprehensive reports.
Two options for scoring and reporting are now available on Q-global:
- The first option is to pay per-report. Customers who administer this assessment only a few times each year, or those who want the flexibility to pay only as the assessment is used, may prefer this option.
- The second option is to select an "unlimited use" subscription, where one user of this assessment gets unlimited scoring and reporting for a year. This may be a better option for customers who administer this measure several times each year - and don't want to worry about keeping track of their report expenses.
Please note there is no onscreen administration included in the scoring subscription. Customers selecting this option must manually enter data in order for scores and reports to be generated.
