  1. AP = Anxious Preoccupation, CA = Cognitive Avoidance, FA = Fatalism, FS = Fighting Spirit, HH = Helpless-Hopeless
  2. *Min-Max scores of AP 8-32; CA 4-16; FA 5-20; FS 4-16;HH 8-32
  3. **Min-Max 1-4 (mean computed by dividing total sum with number of items)
  4. p-value significant at ≤0.05
  5. ns = not significant, Wilcoxon's signed rank test
  6. Number of false significances is calculated to 0.16.
