The construct of impulsivity is included in all prominent personality models and is amongst the most frequently cited diagnostic criteria (American Psychiatric Association, 2013).
The UPPS-P model of impulsivity (Lynam et al., 2006) – which has become dominant in impulsivity research – is underlain by five dimensions which are involved in the etiology of numerous psychopathological and neurological disorders.
Based on this model, the original 59-item UPPS-P Scale was developed and validated (Whiteside et al., 2005; Cyders et al., 2007), which allows to predict a wide range of psychopathological symptoms from a transdiagnostic perspective (Berg et al., 2015). To facilitate its implementation in both clinical and research settings, Billieux et al. (2012) then developed and validated a 20-item short-form version of the UPPS-P Scale.
Nevertheless, the methodological approach used in the development of the current internationally used 20-item UPPS-P Scale has led to the selection of redundant items (Cyders et al., 2014), thus compromising the scale’s content coverage.
In this presentation, I will discuss a novel psychometric approach that aims to renew and improve the short-form assessment of impulsivityVoir les détails »
