The Model Computerphobia Reduction Program: A Longitudinal Evaluation.
Rosen, Larry D.; And Others
The Model Computerphobia Reduction Program involved assigning clients to individualized treatment programs on the basis of computer anxiety level. In order to evaluate the personalized treatment programs, pre- and post-treatment attitude scales (including the Attitudes Toward Computers Scale, the Computer Anxiety Rating Scale, and the Computer Thoughts Survey) and a post-treatment questionnaire were utilized. In addition, a follow-up questionnaire was administred 6 months after completion of the treatment program. Clients showed dramatic changes following the 5-week program. Nearly all clients showed markedly decreased anxiety, improved cognitions, and enhanced attitudes. Clients increased computer utilization on campus, in their personal lives, and on the job.
