Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI)
Graph: Beck Anxiety Inventory Total Scores
Pre and post level 2 scores on the Beck Anxiety Inventory (shown in the graph above) suggest that those who completed the programmes mean score decreased from M= 14.68 (SD=9.22) pre intervention to M=14.15 (SD=9.07) post intervention. However, this reduction was not statistically significant, t (18) = .45, p = .66. This small reduction may be explained by the mean pre level 2 intervention already falling within the lower end of the mildanxiety range.
At pre Level 2, 36.8% had anxiety scores in the moderate and severe range. This dropped to 31.6% by the end of Level 2 (See the table below).

Beck Depression Inventory (BDI)
Graph: Beck Depression Inventory Total Scores
Average depression scores for those who completed the programme (indicated on the graph above) were in the mild range pre-intervention (M = 16.15, SD = 10.46) and remained within the mild range (M =14.36 , SD =9.25) post intervention level 2. This reduction in mean scores was not statistically significant however, t (18) = 1.49, p = .15.
The Fear Questionnaire

Total Phobia Scores dropped from a mean of 24.5 (SD = 17.21) to 21.38 (SD =17.35) post level 2. However, this reduction was not statistically significant, t (17) = .84, p = .41.
The Social Safeness and Pleasure Scale
Graph: The Social Safeness and Pleasure Scale
Participant’s scores on the Social Safeness and Pleasure Scale changed from a mean of 34.89 (SD= 8.35) pre level 2 intervention to 35.36 (SD=8.01) post intervention. However this increase was not statistically significant t (18) = .29, p=.77, but was a change in the intended direction.
Work and Social Adjustment Scale
There was no difference observed between pre (M = 17.00, SD = 10.39) and post (M = 16.31, SD = 16.31) level 2 scores on the Social Work and Leisure Scale, t (18) = .45, p = .66.
