The Beliefs about Voices Questionnaire – Revised: A factor structure from 450 participants
چکیده انگلیسی

•The BAVQ-R was designed to measure beliefs about voices and reactions to voices.•Despite widespread use, the factor structure of the BAVQ-R has not been established.•A two-factor model of beliefs (Persecutory and Benevolent) provided the best fit.•A two-factor model of reactions (Engagement and Resistance) provided the best fit.

Hallucinated voices are common across psychiatric and non-clinical groups. The predominant cognitive theory about the impact of voices posits that beliefs about voice power (‘Omnipotence’) and voice intent (‘Malevolence’/‘Benevolence’) play a key role in determining emotional and behavioral reactions. The revised Beliefs about Voices Questionnaire (BAVQ-R) was designed to assess these constructs, together with two styles of responding (Engagement and Resistance). The BAVQ-R is widely used in clinical and research settings, yet it has not received validation of its constructs and factor structure. This study examined the factor structure of the BAVQ-R by combining datasets from five study centers, comprising 450 participants (belief constructs) and 269 participants (response styles), and using confirmatory and exploratory factor analysis. Findings failed to support a three factor belief model, instead showing a two-factor structure (‘Persecutory beliefs’ combining Omnipotence and Malevolence constructs, and a Benevolent construct). Emotional and behavioral items did not separate. Overall, results showed that (i) a two-factor model of beliefs (Persecutory and Benevolent beliefs) provides a better fit to the data than a three-factor model, and (ii) emotional and behavioral modes of responding items should not be separated. Theoretical implications of this finding are discussed in relation to the research and therapy.
