About Acceptance and Action Questionnaire by Hayes 2004
The AAQ is a 9-item measure of experiential avoidance, which is defined as the phenomenon that occurs when an individual is unwilling to maintain contact with particular internal experiences, for example, bodily sensations, emotions and thoughts, memories, urges. Participants rated each statement on a 7-point Likert-type scale, anchored (1) strongly disagree to (7) strongly agree (the anchors were altered for the purpose of this study in order to provide consistency throughout the questionnaires used).
The AAQ has demonstrated acceptable temporal stability (test-retest correlation coefficient .64) and internal consistency (∝ = .70), as well as validity, demonstrated by predicted correlations with measures of general psychopathology, anxiety and depression (Hayes et al., 2004). Acceptable internal consistency was demonstrated within the current sample (∝ = .71). A positive correlation was expected with reactions to intrusions.
