*correlation with intention: p < .001 (Bonferroni correction for multiple comparisons).

**significant predictors of intention in the multivariate linear model.

M = mean; (SD) = Standard Deviation. The D-600 scores are on a continuum, where a higher score indicates a more positive association with the variable. All explicit measures, except Severity, are from 1–5, where 5 indicates a higher score on the variable.
