  1. Defining psychological empowerment construct: analysis of three empowerment scales

    Miguel, Marta Cristina Trindade; Ornelas, José H.; Maroco, João
    This study aimed to contribute to the validation of psychological empowerment, which is a combination of sense of control (intrapersonal component), critical awareness of the sociopolitical environment (interactional component), and community involvement (behavioral component). Three scales of empowerment used to evaluate the 3 components were translated into Portuguese, adapted for the Portuguese population, and applied in person, by phone and by e-mail. Participants were enrolled in or had completed a program of recognition of prior learning. We tested reflective and formative measurement models and the results suggested that a reflective model fits the data better than a formative one. Confirmatory factor analysis confirmed psychological empowerment as a hierarchical third-order factor. Second-order...

  2. The role of perceived housing quality and perceived choice to recovery: An ecological perspective on a housing first program in Lisbon

    Martins, Paulo Daniel Fernandes; Ornelas, José H.; Silva, Ana Cristina
    This study explores, from an ecological perspective, the relationship between perceived housing quality and the perception of choice, and between perceived choice and recovery of 45 Housing First Lisbon participants. For this purpose, we used a quantitative method and applied three instruments that report perceived housing quality, perceived choice and severe mental illness recovery. The findings reveal a significant and positive association between perceived housing quality and perceived choice, and between perceived choice and recovery, with choice being predicted by housing quality and recovery predicted by choice. These results reinforce the scientific evidence regarding the success of housing first models as a consumer choice-driven intervention, addressing pertinent...

  3. “What’s wrong with the seed?” A comparative examination of an empowering community-centered approach to recovery in community mental health

    Monteiro, Maria Fátima Jorge; Ornelas, José H.
    This cross-sectional group comparison aimed to examine whether personal empowerment, recovery and community integration were associated with the individual's participation in an empowering community-centered model of intervention. Ninety-three participants from an empowering community-centered community mental health organization were compared with a matched group of individuals from standard interventions of four equivalent organizations. Results showed that participants taking advantage of the empowering community-centered approach were more involved in high recovery-oriented programs; and attained higher levels of personal goals and hope, empowerment, and of community integration. An involvement in high recovery-oriented programs (supported employment or independent housing) revealed improved outcomes for the...

  4. The Capabilities Questionnaire for the Community Mental Health context (CQ-CMH) : A measure inspired by the capabilities approach and constructed through consumer–researcher collaboration

    Sacchetto, Beatrice; Aguiar, Rita; Monteiro, Maria Fátima Jorge; Neves, Maria João; Cruz, Maria Adelaide; Coimbra, José António; Ornelas, José H.
    The involvement of people with psychiatric disabilities in research and service evaluation has traditionally been rare, especially in the construction of outcome measures. This study documents a collaborative process with consumers from 2 Portuguese community mental health services in the construction of the Capabilities Questionnaire for the Community Mental Health context (CQ-CMH). The measure is inspired by Nussbaum's capabilities approach and aims to measure consumers' capabilities when supported by the community mental health services.

  6. Migration-related detention centers : The challenges of an ecological perspective with a focus on justice

    Esposito, Francesca; Ornelas, José H.; Arcidiacono, Caterina
    Background: In recent years, border control and migration-related detention have become increasingly widespread practices affecting the lives of undocumented migrants, their families, and communities at large. In spite of the concern within academia, few studies have directly witnessed the life and experiences of people confined to migration-related detention centers. In the medical and psychological fields, a considerable body of research has demonstrated the pathogenic nature of detention in terms of mental health, showing an association between length of detention and severity of distress. Nevertheless, it was limited to the assessment of individuals’ clinical consequences, mainly focusing on asylum seekers. There currently exists a need to adopt...

  7. What transformation? A qualitative study of empowering settings and community mental health organizations

    Monteiro, Maria Fátima Jorge; Aguiar, Rita; Sacchetto, Beatrice; Moniz, Maria João Vargas; Ornelas, José H.
    This article is based on empowering settings research and has a two-fold objective: to propose an adaptation of the empowering community settings framework to community mental health organizations practice to foster recovery and community integration; and to discuss how the adapted framework is a relevant tool to challenge community mental health transformation at multiple levels of analysis. The current study was anchored in a larger qualitative research project. It used a case study approach, with 8 in-depth interviews with diverse participants from one community mental health organization. The adapted model proved useful to guide transformational practice in community mental health programs and for evaluation of organizational empowerment and...

  9. Properties of the portuguese version of the empowerment scale with mental health organization users

    Monteiro, Maria Fátima Jorge; Ornelas, José H.
    Background: This study examines the reliability and validity of the Portuguese version of the Empowerment Scale (ES) to be used in the community/psychosocial mental health field. Authors also reviewed the properties of the development and cross-cultural adaptation of the ES. Because mental health services are required to encourage empowerment and recovery-oriented interventions, adequate empowerment-oriented outcome measures are needed to evaluate services and study interventions across countries. Methods: The current research was part of a larger research project with 213 participants. A confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) was conducted to observe the ES’s construct-related validity, and a reliability analysis for internal consistency. The ES concurrent validity with the recovery...
