CANCER BEHAVIOR INVENTORY (CBI-2.0)
This questionnaire contains many things that a person might do when receiving treatment for cancer. We are interested in your judgment of how confident you are that you can accomplish those things. Make sure your ratings accurately reflect your confidence whether or not you have done it in the past. So, your ratings reflect your confidence that you can do these things now (or in the near future). Please read each numbered item. Then rate that item on how confident you are that you can accomplish that behavior. Circle a number on the scale. If you circle a “1” you would be stating that you are not at all
confident that you can accomplish that behavior. If you circle a “9” you would be stating that you are totally confident that you can accomplish that behavior. Numbers in the middle of the scale indicate that you are moderately confident that you can accomplish that behavior. Please rate all items. If you are not sure about an item please rate it as best you can.
All items are rated on the following scale
