This prediction was based on the rationale that persons who exhibit depressive personality disorder symptomatology would be more apt to report general depression Tyrer et al. Method Participants The 52 participants 12 men; 40 women in the present research came from several lower-division psychology courses at a small public midwestern university during the fall of The participants volunteered to participate in this research as one way to partially fulfill requirements in their courses.
Evidence for the reliability of the PDQ was provided by Uehara, Sakado, and Satowho recorded reliability coefficients ranging from. Evidence of validity was provided by Hyler et al. Further evidence of validity was provided by Hyler, Skodol, Kellman, Oldham, and Rosnickwho reported that the PDQ-R provides an effective means of assessing the presence of personality disorders. A more recent study by Hyler, Skodol, Oldham, Kellman, and Doidge reported that the PDQ-R is an excellent measure for detecting the absence of a personality disorder.

Snell designed the Relational Awareness Scale RAS was designed to measure three intimate relationship tendencies: Snell provided evidence for the reliability of the RAS, by reporting that there was sufficient internal consistency and stability to justify the use of all three RAS subscales in analyses. The Cronbach alpha for the relational-consciousness scale was. In addition, test-retest reliability was.

Bartholomew and Horowitz designed the RQ to measure four attachment patterns: Participants responded to the RQ using a 5-point Likert scale: Scharfe and Bartholomew provided evidence for the reliability of the RQ, reporting internal reliabilities ranging from a low of. Griffin and Bartholomew conducted three different studies, using five different methods of assessment i. They found strong support for the construct validity of the four attachment dimensions.
Snell and Finney designed the RAQ to measure three relationship tendencies: Participants indicated how much each statement characterized them, using a 5-point Likert scale with each item being scored from 0 to 4: Higher scores corresponded to greater esteem, depression, and relationship preoccupation, respectively. Snell and Finney provided evidence for the reliability of the RAQ; alpha was.
Procedure When the participants arrived at the testing room, the experimenter described the purpose of the study to them and asked them to read and sign an informed consent form.
The experimenter also guaranteed them complete anonymity and assured them that their responses would be kept in complete confidentiality. All participants who entered the study agreed to participate. Each participant then received a questionnaire booklet containing the various measures.
Following the completion of the measures, the participants received a written debriefing form that explained the purpose of the study.
Relationship Assessment Scale (RAS)
The questionnaires in the booklet required approximately min to complete. The researcher collected data in four separate sessions in small groups of up to 19 participants. Relationship Satisfaction An inspection of Table 1 reveals a significant negative correlation between relationship satisfaction and schizotypal personality disorder.
Quality of Relationship e.
The fourth and fifth subscales were derived from items mirroring the ones asked regarding peer delinquency; but using the romantic partner, not the peers, as the referent person. In addition, for those youth who live with their romantic partner, two additional questions assess how much the romantic partner monitors the behavior of the participant.
For each question, the participant responds on a 4-point Likert scale ranging from "not at all" to "very much"; therefore, for the first three subscales, higher scores indicate a more symbiotic romantic relationship and for the last three subscales, more antisocial influence, antisocial behavior and more monitoring respectively.

- Description of Measure
A three factor model including the Quality of Relationship, Knowledge of Behavior, and Tolerance of Deviance subscales the original model from Pierce et al.
The single subscale for Quality of Relationship was also fit to the baseline data as a single scale, also showing adequate consistency and fit on its own alpha: Analyses have not been done for the subscales for Antisocial Influence, Antisocial Behavior or Monitoring. We compute five scores from this measure: If the subject is currently with the main romantic partner, questions will be phrased in the present tense. If the subject is NOT currently with the main romantic partner, questions will be phrased in the past tense.
All summary scores will be missing if the subject was not in a steady relationship during the recall period. This status is established in the Romance Calendar; refer to this codebook section for a detailed definition of a steady partner.
