Beck Hopelessness Scale (BHS)

This App enables you to administer the Beck Hopelessness Scale. The Beck Hopelessness Scale measures negative attitudes about the future. Responding to the 20 true or false items on the (BHS), patients can either endorse a pessimistic statement or deny an optimistic statement. The BHS evaluates the magnitude of hopelessness in psychiatrically diagnosed patients and assesses hopelessness in the normal population.

Simple and Secure Assessments

The BHS Digital Stimulus Book is embedded within the Coviu call, allowing you to display the stimuli without leaving your call window. Each stimulus book is enhanced with additional security features that help prevent screenshots of stimuli from being released online. Responses are automatically scored and interpreted in real-time, so you can see the results. Results are neatly stored in a downloadable PDF format for offline viewing and backed up in Coviu’s cloud storage.


You and your client can see each other's cursor movements over the stimulus book, enabling you to direct the client's attention. When the client selects a response, an annotation with numbers indicates the order of responses. We call these 'click-markers'.

Standardized Environments

The App modifies the client’s interface to standardize the environment and reduce the risk of distraction. The client’s view, the client’s toolbar, and the video are hidden from their view, so they can only see the stimulus book and clinician’s video. This ensures you can achieve accurate and reliable test results.
