Outcome measures used in YP Face IT
During the pilot trial the following measures will be administered pre, post and 3 month following course completion.
- Social Anxiety Scale for Adolescents (SAS-A, La Greca, 1999). The SAS-A has 3 subscales: fear of negative evaluation, social anxiety in new social situations and general social anxiety.
- Body Esteem Appearance subscale from Mendelson, White & Mendelson's (1997) Body Esteem Scale for Adolescents and adults.
- Self Worth Subscale from Harter's (1988) Self Perception Profile for Adolescents. This sub scale taps the extent to which the young person likes them self as a person, is happy the way they are leading their life, and is generally happy with the way they are. Thus it constitutes a global judgement of one's worth as a person, rather than a domain-specific competence or adequacy.
- Romantic Appeal Subscale from Harter's (1985) Self Perception Profile for Adolescents. This subscale taps teenager's perceptions that they are romantically attractive to those in whom they are interested, are dating the people they would like to be dating and feel they are fun and interesting on a date.
- Social skills improvement system questionnaire (Gresham & Elliot, 2011) measures the frequency and perceived importance of positive behaviours as well as information on problem behaviours that may interfere with the young person's ability to acquire or perform specific social skills.
- Perceived Stigmatization Questionnaire (Lawrence et al, 2006) measures the frequency of various stigmatizing social behaviours experienced by people with visible differences.
