A contemporary review of the alcohol/aggression relationship and the Buss-Perry Aggression Questionnaire for use in an alcohol dependent population

A contemporary review of the alcohol/aggression relationship and the Buss-Perry Aggression... A contemporary review of the psychometric properties of the Buss-Perry Aggression Questionnaire was undertaken to assess its suitability for an alcohol dependent population. Three criteria were used to try to achieve this: factor analysis; internal consistency reliability; and test-retest reliability. Factor analysis revealed that its structure is remarkably consistent in a number of populations. Internal consistency reliability and test-retest reliability results scores proved to be mainly above the recommended threshold. A conclusion was reached regarding these results that the Buss-Perry Aggression Questionnaire is an effective screening tool for aggression in an alcohol dependent population. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Aggression, Conflict and Peace Research Pier Professional

Abstract

A contemporary review of the psychometric properties of the Buss-Perry Aggression Questionnaire was undertaken to assess its suitability for an alcohol dependent population. Three criteria were used to try to achieve this: factor analysis; internal consistency reliability; and test-retest reliability. Factor analysis revealed that its structure is remarkably consistent in a number of populations. Internal consistency reliability and test-retest reliability results scores proved to be mainly above the recommended threshold. A conclusion was reached regarding these results that the Buss-Perry Aggression Questionnaire is an effective screening tool for aggression in an alcohol dependent population.
