Work-related self-efficacy among community residents with psychiatric disabilities
Waghorn, Geoff, Chant, David, & King, Robert (2005) Work-related self-efficacy among community residents with psychiatric disabilities. Psychiatric Rehabilitation Journal, 29(2), pp. 105-113.
A new measure of work-related self-efficacy for people with psychiatric disabilities is reported. The 37-item scale measures self-efficacy in four relevant activity domains: 1) vocational service access and career planning, 2) job acquisition, 3) work-related social skills, and 4) general work skills. The scale was developed in a 12-month longitudinal survey of urban residents diagnosed with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder (n = 104). Results indicate validity of both a four-factor structure differentiating four core skill domains, and a single factor representing total work-related self-efficacy. The favorable psychometric properties support further research and trial applications in supported employment and psychiatric vocational rehabilitation.
