  1. Note. Unless indicated otherwise, the response scale had 5 points that ranged from strongly disagree (coded as 1) to strongly agree (5). We did not compare changes from post-training to 1-month follow-up within trial arms due to differences in item wording at each time point
  2. *p < .05 between trial arms at a given time point (between subjects)
  3. aResponse scale is 5 points, ranging from decreased a lot (coded as 1) to increased a lot (5)
  4. – Item not assessed at this time point
