General Dissociation Scale and Hypnotizability with African American College Students.
Sapp, Marty; Hitchcock, Kim
The purpose of this study was to assess the reliability of the General Dissociation Scale with African American college students, and provide additional data on how to assess hypnotizability with these students. Two-hundred and two undergraduate African American college students participated in this study. Students completed the HGSHS:A, a measure of hypnotic depth, the Dissociative Experiences Scale (DES), General Dissociation Scale (GDS), the Inner Subjective Experiences scoring for the HGSHS:A, a measure of automatic hypnotic responding, and the Tellegen Absorption Scale (TAS). The GDS produced items had a reliability of .87 and it correlated .505, p<.01, with the DES. This study supported a previous study that showed that the HGSHS:A behavioral scoring method does not produce reliable items with African American college students, and these researchers suggested that the Inner Subjective Experiences method for scoring the HGSHS:A is more appropriate for African American college students than the behaviorally scored items of the HGSHS:A.
