Abstract

Drawing on the classic model of balanced affect as developed and operationalised in the Francis Burnout Inventory, the present study describes the development of, and tests the construct validity of, The Index of Balanced Affect Change (TIBACh) among a sample of 4,449 Church of England clergy (29%) and laity (71%). The two five-item measures showed acceptable internal consistency reliability, with Cronbach’s alphas of .70 for positive affect and .83 for negative affect. Construct validity was tested against an independent measure of coping during lockdown. Coping was positively correlated with positive affect and negatively correlated with negative affect. Crucially, for the balanced affect model, there was a significant interaction effect of positive and negative affect on coping, showing that the ameliorating effect of positive affect on coping increased with increasing levels of negative affect.
