Adaptation and Validation of the Standardized Assessment of Personality

Personality disorder assessments are time consuming and require experienced interviewers. They are not performed usually on a daily basis. In clinical and normal populations, there is a necessity for short and fast self- administered screening test for the personality disorder. Firstly, we translated the raw form of the SAPAS into French and validated it in a clinical sample (n=28). This adapts activity revealed properties similar to those of the original version. The first and second studies validated the adapt activity of the SA-SAPAS as a self-administered questionnaire in clinical (n=45) and general (n=186) populations. We were able to use the same cut-off (score ≥ 2) in both the clinical and normal populations and this allow correct identification in 89% of the clinical subjects (sensitivity of 97.3%; specificity of 50%) and 86% in the normal population (sensitivity of 87.5%; specificity of 85.7%).
