Child Sexual Behavior Inventory (CSBI)

CPP Cohort 4

The Child Sexual Behavior Inventory (CSBI)* is a questionnaire used to assess caregiver reported sexual behaviors in children ages 2 to 12 years old.  Domains assessed include developmentally related sexual behaviors (DRSB) and sexual abuse specific items (SASI).  The CSBI was administered only if there were concerns about possible sexual abuse or if the participating caregiver had concerns about the child’s sexual behaviors.  Mean scores of these domains, as well as the total difficulties, will be examined from pre- to post-treatment.

Descriptive Statistics:  Pre- and post-treatment assessment measure means, standard deviations, and standard errors for each subscale of the CSBI are listed in the table below, as well as the range of possible scores and clinically significant range for each subscale.

CCBI Subscales: Descriptive Statistics

Repeated Measures Analyses: Paired samples t-tests were conducted to examine pre-post group mean difference on CSBI subscales and total difficulties scores.  Analyses did not show statistically significant change in either subscale or Total Difficulties.  See the table and graph below for more information on these analyses. To reiterate, the CSBI was administered only if there were concerns about possible sexual abuse or if the participating caregiver had concerns about the child’s sexual behaviors. As such, these analyses were conducted with a particularly small sample size and these results should be interpreted with extreme caution.

CSBI Pre-Post Treatment Mean Subscale and Total Scores

Individual Clinically-Significant Change:

At pre-treatment, one client had CSBI Total Difficulties t-scores at or above the clinical cutoff score of 65.  Of note, this client was not missing the CSBI Total Difficulties t-score at post-treatment.  Analysis of the clients with post-treatment data showed that the CSBI Total Difficulties t-score for 0 of the 1 client (0%) decreased to non-clinically significant levels by post-treatment.  At pre-treatment, 1 client had pre-treatment CSBI DRSB t-scores at or above the clinical cutoff score of 65.  Of note, this client was not missing the CSBI DRSB t-score at post-treatment.  Analysis of the clients with post-treatment data showed that CSBI DRSB t-scores for 0 of the 1 client (0%) decreased to non-clinically significant levels by post-treatment.  At pre-treatment, 1 client had pre-treatment CSBI SASI t-scores at or above the clinical cutoff score of 65.  Of note, this client was not missing the CSBI SASI t-score at post-treatment.  Analysis of the clients with post-treatment data showed that CSBI SASI t-scores for 1 of the 1 client (100%) decreased to non-clinically significant levels by post treatment.
