본 연구는 컴퓨터 기반 평가조건화 훈련(ECT)이 물질중독의 외현적, 내현적 태도에 미치는 영향을 살펴보았다. 물질사용중독으로 수감된 22명이 본 연구에 참여하였고 이들 중 11명은 ECT 훈련 집단 그리고 나머지 11명은 ECT 훈련을 받지 않는 통제 집단으로 배정되었다. ECT 훈련은 총 5회기 하루 10분씩 진행되었다. 훈련 전후 약물에 대한 갈망 및 단약 자기 효능감 척도를 실시하고 암묵적 연합 검사와 아이트래커를 사용하여 측정하였다. 결과 외현적 그리고 내현적 척도 모두에서 두 집단 간 유의한 차이는 나타나지 않았다. 이 같은 결과를 바탕으로 본 연구의 의의와 제한점에 대해 논의하였다.


This study aimed to investigate the effects of a computer-based evaluative conditioning training (ECT) on explicit and implicit attitudes regarding substance addiction. Twenty-two inmates, who were diagnosed with substance-use disorders, and were imprisoned in a treatment detention center, were allocated to one of the two groups, treatment group, who were exposed to the ECT (n=11) and control group (n=11), who were not. Both the groups completed the Pennsylvania Alcohol Craving Scale, the Drug Abstinence Self-Efficacy Scale, and an adapted version of the Implicit Association Test presented along with an eye-tracker, at the pre-and post-test stages. Results showed that there were no significant differences in explicit or implicit attitudes between the two groups. Based on these results, the implications and limitations of this study are discussed.
