MASSEI, Ariane Cristina  and  YOSHIDA, Elisa Medici Pizão. Assessment of the psychometrical properties of the Central Relationship Questionnaire 6.0 (CRQ 6.0) in HIV/Aids. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2009, vol.11, n.2, pp. 83-96. ISSN 1516-3687.

HIV/Aids is a disease with physical and psychological consequences that can reach the affective-relationship field. The study aimed to evaluate the psychometric properties of the Central Relationship Questionnaire (CRQ 6.0) in seropositive HIV/Aids patients. The CRQ 6.0 is a self-report instrument, based on the Core Conflictual Relationship Theme (CCRT), and designed to evaluate the central relationship pattern according to three components: wish (W), response of other (RO) and response from self (RS). Samples were integrated by a group of HIV-positive persons (G1, n = 50) and one group of persons who accompanied ambulatory patients in the same hospital (G2, n = 40). The CRQ 6.0 showed good internal consistency (alphas between 0.80 to 0.87), evidence of convergent and discriminant validity, with positive and significant associations between its components and factors of the Scale for Assessment of Symptoms (EAS-40) (from 0.23 to 0.57) and significant difference on scores between G1 and G2 for RS and between sexes for W in the G1.
