Below is a list of Frequently Asked Questions, and some possible responses to them which are discussed in the Control Therapy Training Manual and in Control Therapy Last Lecture template. If used as part of a course, these FAQs and the responses can be used as possible hand-outs during the appropriate weeks of the class where they might be asked (or covered in the class material). If not, this list might be helpful for the final session if there are any questions the instructor feels are important to discuss with the class.
If you have a question, and can't find the answer here, please don't hesitate to contact us.
NOTE: Questions related to the administration of the SCI Test can be found on the SCI Test Site; questions related to the SCI of a research nature can be found on this page and on the Shapiro Control Inventory (SCI) Manual page.
SCI Manual Chapter 2. Chapter 2 gives an overview of the different scales the SCI contains. So, let's say, on p. 19, you decide you want to score tyhe positive sense of control scale, and on p. 22 the scale 6, positive yielding mode of control.
Starting with the positive sense of control scale: you look on p. 72-73 and you will see the 11 items that comprise the positive sense of control scale. Therefore, you find the mean and standard deviation for that scale using those items. A copy of the SCI is in Appendix 1.
For a positive yielding mode of control scale, there are 16 items in the positive mode of control scale. Those items are listed on p. 182. Again, use the same process to create the mean and the standard deviation.
