Dimensional Assessment of Personality Pathology - Basic Questionnaire (DAPP-BQ)
The Dimensional Assessment of Personality Pathology - Basic Questionnaire (DAPP-BQ) provides a convenient and detailed assessment of personality disorder for psychologists, psychiatrists, and other professionals. The instrument is designed to provide a comprehensive assessment of the basic dimensions of personality disorder and clinically relevant personality traits. It assesses a variety of affective, cognitive, and interpersonal characteristics that have important implications for a personís mental health, adjustment, and well being.
The dimensions of personality disorder assessed with the DAPP-BQ are based upon a substantial program of research on the structure and etiology of personality disorder. The measure was developed by refining concepts that clinicians have found useful in understanding, describing, and treating personality disorder. Thus, the development of the DAPP-BQ addresses a need to evaluate clinically important aspects of personality disorder using modern, structured approaches to test construction.
The DAPP-BQ consists of 290 items that assess 18 dimensions of personality disorder. The 18 scales are defined in terms of the way these traits are manifested in individuals with personality disorder. Consequently, scale names reflect diagnostic terms and constructs that are commonly used in clinical practice, making it useful for clinicians when diagnosing and treating patients.
