The Ladder UPP – Data

Data that it works!

Study summary:

We wanted to study the efficacy of The Ladder UPP in a recovery environment utilizing the Snyder Hope Scale. The Snyder Hope Scale is a much studied, long used diagnostic tool. The higher your “Hope” score, the more likely you are to be successful in life change. Hope is seen in a practical way, “I have a plan, I believe the plan can happen”. The more you believe that, the higher your “hope” and the more likely you will engage in life change. We took pre- and post- data from 3 groups of men and women in recovery.

We found the following:

Our men’s group showed a mean Hope Scale Agency improvement of 20% with a standard deviation of 0.33, and a Pathway improvement of 22% with a standard deviation of .37.

Our women’s group showed a mean Hope Scale Agency improvement of 27% with a standard deviation of 0.17, and a Pathway improvement of 9% with a standard deviation of 0.12.

The combined Agency improvement was 22% with a standard deviation of 0.28 and the combined Pathway improvement was 17% with a standard deviation of .31.

A review by an Indiana University and VA research scientist found our data to be scientifically significant.
