The results of effect of intervention on each factor of S.W.B.I.
separately are presented in Tables 4-6. The paired t-test analysis
was undertaken to test the significance of observed change from
pre intervention to post intervention stage. Since the same
group was assessed before and after intervention, the analysis
was based on differences between pairs of scores. The mean difference
thus found is compared against the null hypothesis that the
true difference between means of pre intervention and post intervention
is zero, that is, against the null hypothesis of zero gain.
S. W. B. I. Factors
Tables 4-6 have been presented to show mean score of S.W.B.I.
factors at pre-intervention and post-intervention stages so
that the changes can be directly seen from' tables. Significant
change from pre-intervention to post-intervention have been
indicated by ' * '.
There is considerable similarity between results of Bangalore
and Delhi centres. No significant difference is observed between
initial and six monthly and one yearly evaluation for any of
the S.W.B.I. factors in control area of Bangalore and Delhi
centres. The results on S.W.B.I. factors are shown in Tables
4, 5 & 6 for Bangalore, Delhi & Lucknow respectively.
In experimental area, the observations are as follows:
The factor named 'S. W.B. Positive Affect' does not show any
significant change at six months nor at one year at Bangalore
and Delhi Centres (Tables 4 & 5). The factor 'expectation-achievement
congruence' does not show significant change at six months,
but significant improvement is observed at one year at Bangalore
and Delhi centres. The factor 'confidence in coping' shows significant
improvement at six months at Delhi centre and at one year it
shows significant improvement at Delhi as well as Bangalore
centre. Factor named 'transcendence' does not show any significant
change at Bangalore and Delhi.
The factor 'family group support' showed significant improvement
at six months as well as one year evaluation at Delhi Centre
but not at Bangalore Centre. No significant change was observed
in the factor 'social support' at Bangalore and Delhi Centres.
This factor did not show a significant change at Lucknow centre
also. There was no significant change in factor 'primary group
concern' at Bangalore and Delhi centres (Tables 4 & 5). The
factor 'inadequate mental mastery' showed significant improvement
only at one year at Bangalore Centre and no change was observed
in the factor 'perceived ill health' at Bangalore and Delhi
centres, The factor 'deficiency in social contacts' showed significant
improvement at Bangalore centre on
