1. Interpersonal Functioning and Emotion in Borderline Personality ("Emotion and Interpersonal Functioning"): Significant Other Data Only

Description: (From Oltmanns & Turkheimer, 2006) The Multi-source Assessment of Personality Pathology (MAPP) is composed of 103 items, including 79 items based on the features of 10 personality disorders listed in DSM-IV as well as 24 supplementary items based on additional personality traits (mostly positive characteristics, such as "trustworthy and reliable”). The items are presented to participants in a quasi-random order.

In the original MAPP, the participant is asked to nominate members of his or her group who exhibit the characteristic in question. For E-IFB, the MAPP is used as part of the informant questionnaire battery and participants are asked about the patient in the study. Items for the MAPP were constructed by translating the DSM-IV criterion sets for PDs into lay language.

Data Notes: N/A

(From Thomas et al., 2003). It has been shown to have high reliability (r = .54 to .74) when using the median coefficient alpha for each PD criterion.
