Measures by Chambless and Colleagues:
An Incomplete Bibliography for the ACQ, BSQ, and MIA

NB: I would welcome additions to this bibliography. Please tell me of work that you or others do on these measures that I might include here. E-mail me at chambless@psych.upenn.edu.

I. Agoraphobic Cognitions Questionnaire and Body Sensations Questionnaire.

These companion measures have been translated into Dutch, German, French, French Canadian, Greek, Spanish, Swedish, Italian, Russian (ACQ only), Serbo-Croatian, and Portuguese. I am told that a Mandarin version of the ACQ has also been created but have not seen it myself.

Some validation papers:

Ahmad, T., Wardle, J., & Hayward, P. (1992). Physical symptoms and illness attributions in agoraphobia and panic, BRAT, 30, 493-500. Demonstrate high correlation of ACQ with ASI. Also agoraphobics higher than normal controls on ACQ. Don't test but ASI-ACQ r looks smaller than r with a hypochondriasis measure.
