I have been retired for more than 15 years but I
still get e-mails about C-I-SAID and the A.A.P.PQ.
C-I-Said is a legacy product and may not work on

A.A.P.P.Q - Alcohol and Alcohol Problems Pereception
A.A.P.P.Q. and associated questionairres seem to be
still in use. They are also circulating widely in the public domain. I do have a
digital copy of the original questionairre but the layout dates from 1977. You
can find the items in the Key Concepts paper described below. If you want the
section measuring clinical knowledge you must download the original version.
I also have hard copies of the original
articles. These are becoming increasingly difficult to obtain as libraries are
disposing of old journals and the journal publishers want extorionate sums to
view articles which are over 30 years old, even from the authors!
The Key References to the AAPPQ are

Treatment of Alcoholism, British Journal of Addiction 76, pp. 347-361.
This was the original paper.

will be available. The general theory which led to the development of the
A.A.P.P.Q was described in Shaw,
S., Cartwright, A., Spratley, T. & Harwin, J. (1978) Responding to Drinking
Problems (London, Croom Helm). Increasingly, I am told, authours are referencing
Responding to Drinking Problems as the reference for the A.A.P.P.Q - THERE IS NO
REFERENCE TO THE A.A.P.P.Q IN THIS BOOK.

This is an unpublished book chapter which reviews the work on the relationship
between role security and therapeutic commitment. The AAPPQ was originally
developed to test these theories. The chapter was written at the time of my
retirement from clinical and teaching practice. The others will eventually
be posted. The appendix to this paper contains copies of the individual
AAPPQ, and two other questionairres developed more recently.
