From: Coping with dementia caregiving: a mixed-methods study on feasibility and benefits of a psycho-educative group program

  Pre-test dropouts (N = 8) Pre-test completers (N = 18) Post-test (N = 18) t-test pre-post (df = 17) Effect size
Burden (0–88) 31.63 (17.6) 43.08 (11.3) 38.61 (10.7) 2.13* 0.41
MBP (0–4) 1.36 (0.6) 1.68 (0.5) 1.67 (0.6) 0.10 0.03
MBP-related distress (0–4) 1.58 (0.7) 1.98 (0.6) 1.98 (0.6) −0.06 0.01
Psychological distress (14–56) 23.50 (8.3) 27.94 (5.9) 25.19 (4.4) 1.94* 0.54
Self-efficacy (0–10) 7.69 (1.6) 6.56 (1.9) 7.36 (1.9) −2.33* 0.43
  1. Note. For all the variables listed, higher scores indicate higher levels; MBP memory and behavioral problems; * p < .05, ** p < .01, *** p < .001 (one-tailed); for burden, scores above 18 indicate an important burden and scores above 32 a severe one
