Barriers to Employment and Coping Efficacy Scales – Veterans (BECES-V)

Status Recruitment of participants
Population (diagnosis) Veterans
Researchers Marc Corbière, Jim Thompson, Norman Shields, Chantal Basque, Tania Lecomte, Paul Lysaker
Funding
  • Canadian Institute for Military and Veteran Health Research (CIMVHR)
  • Fonds de démarrage: CR-IUSMM
Description Objectives and specific objectives: The main objective of this study is to validate the psychometric properties of BECES-V tool for veterans (English and French) with mental health conditions. In the present context, the objective is to know the predictive validity of BECES-V results for work reintegration at 6 months after questionnaire administration.
Relevance: BECES-V has potential to be useful in documenting the nature of the barriers encountered by Veterans with a range of mental disorders during transition to civilian workplaces. BECES-V therefore has potential value for evaluating programs offered by DND/CF and VAC, and for research on best practices in assisting Veterans with these problems. BECES-V also has potential to assist the support worker or case manager with helping the Veterans overcome perceived barriers preventing them from transitioning to civilian work. It could be a useful tool to guide case planning, and to ensure that proper attention is given to barriers Veterans perceive to be most significant. BECES-V has potential to assist health care practitioners assisting Veterans with mental health problems to work in civilian jobs.
