Beliefs About Voices Questionnaire

Beliefs About Voices Questionnaire (BAVQ) - Amended

The BAVQ assessed beliefs about voices. It consists of 30 items and 5 sub-scales: Benevolence, Malevolence, Resistance, Engagement and Power.

The original BAVQ (Chadwick and Birchwood, 1995) treated individual items as dichotomous variables and required a "yes" or "no" response. In this adaptation of the questionnaire a four point scale is used as follows:
Never = 0, Seldom = 1, Often = 2, Almost Always = 3

Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale

Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale (BPRS)

This test consists of 24 symptom constructs, each to be rated in a 7-point scale of severity ranging from 'not present' to 'extremely severe'

CES-D Major Depressive Disorder Scale

A commonly used depression screening instrument which may be self-administered.

Edinburgh postnatal major depressive disorder scale

Edinburgh postnatal major depressive disorder scale (EPDS)

The aim of the EPDS is to assist primary care teams in detecting mothers with Postnatal Major Depressive Disorder. Cox et al, who developed the scale, referred to published work demonstrating that 10-15% of mothers experience a marked depressive illness in the months following childbirth.  But sorry... The Royal College of Psychiatrists don't want to share this! I am sorry... It is probably not that useful anyway... Please look elsewhere for information on best practice dealing with and assessing post natal depression. In my view as a clinician post natal depression is very obvious. It doesn't need a questionnaire. I am sorry that you might have been inconvenienced by the RCP not wishing to share their questionnaires (but you can still check out the references).

Geriatric Depression Scale

Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS) - Short Version

This scale was developed as a basic screening measure for depression in older adults. Suitable as a screening test for depressive symptoms in the elderly. Ideal for evaluating the clinical severity of depression, and therefore for monitoring treatment. 

It is easy to administer, needs no prior psychiatric knowledge and has been well validated in many environments - home and clinical. 

The original GDS was a 30 item questionnaire - time consuming and challenging for some patients (and staff). Later versions retain only the most discriminating questions; their validity approaches that of the original form. the most common version in general geriatric practice is the 15-item version.

Health of the Nation Outcomes Scales

Health of the Nation Outcomes Scales (HoNOS)

In 1993 the UK Department of Health commissioned the Royal College of Psychiatrists’ Research Unit (CRU) to develop scales to measure the health and social functioning of people with severe mental illness. The initial aim was to provide a means of recording progress towards the Health of the Nation target ‘to improve significantly the health and social functioning of mentally ill people’

Development and testing over three years resulted in an instrument with 12 items measuring behaviour, impairment, symptoms and social functioning (Wing, Curtis & Beevor, 1996). The scales are completed after routine clinical assessments in any setting and have a variety of uses for clinicians, researchers and administrators, in particular healthcare purchasers and providers.

This is the version for working aged adults.

Self-defeating Beliefs Questionnaire

Self-defeating Beliefs Questionnaire

This is a questionnaire to test the strength of Albert Ellis' 12 primary self-defeating beliefs.

There are 96 questions which relate to 12 core beliefs. The strength of each belief is rated on a scale from 0 to 8. The higher the rating the more likely the belief is to influence behaviour and affect negative feelings.

This questionnaire was developed by Wayne Froggatt. Richard Lakeman and Wayne developed an on-line self-help package based around the questionnaire.
