CSBI Subscales: Descriptive Statistics

Repeated Measures Analyses:  Paired samples t-tests were conducted to examine pre-post group mean differences on CSBI subscales and total difficulties scores.  Analyses showed statistically significant scores in both subscales and Total Difficulties.

Individual Clinically-Significant Change:

At pre-treatment, 17 clients had CSBI Total Difficulties scores at or above the clinical cut-off score of 65. Of note, 8 clients were missing the CSBI Total Difficulties score at post-treatment.  Analysis of the clients with post-treatment data showed that the CSBI Total Difficulties for 6 of these 9 clients (67%) decreased to non-clinically significant levels by post-treatment. At pre-treatment, 21 clients had pre-treatment CSBI DRSB scores at or above the clinical cut-off score of 65. Of note, 12 clients were missing the CSBI Total Difficulties score at post-treatment.   Analysis of the of the clients with post-treatment data showed that CSBI DRSB scores for 6 of these 9 clients (67%) decreased to non-clinically significant levels by post-treatment. Also, 19 clients had pre-treatment CSBI SASI scores at or above the clinical cut-off score of 65. Of note, 9 clients were missing the SASI at post-treatment. Analysis of the clients with post-treatment data showed that CSBI SASI scores for 5 of these 10 clients (50%) decreased to non-clinically significant levels by post-treatment.
