Abstract

A test of cognitive bibliotherapy knowledge was developed and evaluated. Fifty-seven items that related to the content of the book, Feeling Good (Burns, 1980), were administered to a total of 99 participants in two depression bibliotherapy studies and to a group of 22 community participants who had not received the treatment. Analyses of reliability and validity, including an item-response analysis, suggested a 23-item version of the test was optimal. Using the same data, we then tested the hypothesis that persons who had read the book would achieve higher scores than those who had not read the book. The test scores reliably distinguished between participants who had received the treatment and those who had not. Cross-validation was undertaken with 21 older adult participants in an independent depression treatment study, with those who had read the book achieving higher scores than those who had not. Potential clinical and research uses of the test are proposed.
