1. Helpful Responses Questionnaire for Contingency Management (HRQ-CM)

Year: 2015

Developers:
Hartzler, Bryan

Description:
The HRQ-CM is a paper/pencil instrument, adapted from Miller and colleagues’ (1991) Helpful Responses Questionnaire (HRQ). It was developed to assess clinician skill with core communication skills involved in delivering contingency management (CM). The instrument presents a single vignette consisting of six points of client dialogue to which respondents write ‘what they would say next.’ The HRQ-CM maintains the basic vignette structure of the original HRQ, but with item content contextually linked in one patient scenario as if occurring in a single visit.

The HRQ-CM produces a summary score ranging from 0–30. Administration time for the HRQ-CM was consistently 5–10 minutes during the trial described in the source reference (Hartzler 2015).

Population studied:Counselors
Instrument Type:Assessment
Administration/Scoring:The HRQ-CM produces a summary score ranging from 0–30. Administration time for the HRQ-CM during the trial described in the source reference (Hartzler 2015) was consistently 5–10 minutes.
Validity/Reliability:Study results reveal promising psychometric properties for the instrument, including strong scoring reliability, internal consistency, concurrent and predictive validity, test-retest reliability and sensitivity to training effects. These preliminary findings suggest the instrument is a viable, practical method to assess clinician skill in communicative aspects of CM delivery.
