Alternative to HBMT training
- hostile attribution bias [ Time Frame: 24-96 hours post HBMT ]Angry Cognitions Scale/HAB measure: This measure asks respondents to read hypothetical scenarios and indicate how they would interpret and respond to them. It was developed by Martin and Dahlen (2007) and will be used as a measure of HAB. Responses range from very unlikely to very likely (numerically, 1-5). Scoring requires converting responses to the corresponding number, and summing responses for each of the following six subscales: misattributing causation, catastrophic evaluating, overgeneralizing, demandingness, inflammatory labeling, and adaptive (i.e., each question corresponds to a different subscale).
- anger [ Time Frame: 24-96 hours post HBMT ]Trait Anger Scale: Brief measure of trait anger validated by Wilk et al., (2015). Scale (1-5, strongly disagree to strongly agree); Two questions regarding individual's perspective on their anger.
- aggression [ Time Frame: 24-96 hours post HBMT ]State Aggression Survey: This survey is adapted from several others in the literature to measure variance along the normal spectrum of aggressive behaviors in daily life that the average person might display (Álvarez-García, et al., 2016; Deffenbacher, et al., 2001; Deffenbacher, J. et al., 2002). The survey specifically asks about driving behaviors (e.g., yelling at other drivers), and public online behaviors (e.g., posting mean comments on social media), as well as generic public displays of aggression items (e.g., Gotten angry and slammed a door). Scoring 1-5 (frequency: never - five or more times) per question.
