  1. EBI = evidence-based intervention.
  2. Note: error covariances included in the final model were between items 1 and 11 and between items 6 and 10.
  3. * p values for all factor loadings were <.001.
  4. **For this item, seven-point Likert scale ranged from 1 = not at all to 7 = completely (all other items: 1 = strongly disagree to 7 = strongly agree).
  5. ***Item deleted from final model.
