Abstract

The PQ (Elliott, Mack & Shapiro, 1999) is an individualized target complaint measure meant to assess changes in the problems that patients report when they seek psychological treatment. A trained interviewer (intake worker, therapist, or a researcher) helps the client, in an interview-based procedure, to develop a list of approximately ten problem statements describing in their own words what they want to work on in treatment (i.e., “My son does not talk to me anymore”). Overall, PQ is an outcome measure of mental health, with satisfactory psychometric properties, high acceptability and some evidence of clinical usefulness. However, it presents feasibility constraints, mainly because of the time and resources required in the initial interview for item generation.
