Abstract

Studies:

1. Validity in the Diagnosis of Personality Disorders ("Validity")
2. Screening for Personality Disorders ("Screening")
3. Interpersonal Functioning in Borderline Personality ("Interpersonal Functioning")
4. Interpersonal Functioning and Emotion in Borderline Personality ("Emotion and Interpersonal Functioning")
5. Interpersonal Functioning and Emotion in Borderline Personality ("Couples")

Measure Description: The 10-item Alternative Aspects (AA) instrument was created to compare qualitatively different aspects of personality disorder. The clinical literature suggests at least three implicit meanings for the phrase “personality disorder”: a “lack” of character (e.g., poor tolerance for frustration, a lack of perseverance, excessive difficulty in the face of minor stresses), “bad” character (e.g., sociopathy, cruelty, exploitation), or a rigid, maladaptive interpersonal “style” (the DSM meaning of the term and the broadest of the three) resulting in subjective distress, functional impairment, or both. Therefore, the first three items rate each of these three domains on a 5-point scale ranging from “little to none” to “severe”. Items 4 through 10 rate impairment due to personality pathology within 6 specific areas: subjective distress, marital/intimate relationships, parenting (if applicable), occupational functioning, other social relations, distress imposed upon significant others, as well as overall distress.

Data Analysis Notes: Validity & Screening studies used scale range 1-5 for all questions.
IFB, E-IFB & Couples used a scale of 1-5 for first three questions and used the nine point scale from the RAPFA to rate severity and pervasiveness of dysfunction for the last seven questions.
Ratings for the variable “Parent” were made only if the participant had children. Persons with no children (and those lacking any history of responsibilities for child care, including step or foster children) received a ‘98’ or ‘not applicable’ rating.
