Specific alcohol-aggression items in thesequestionnaires have been extracted and used in research (Quigley, Corbett, &Tedeschi, 2002; Zhang, Welte, & Wieczorek, 2002), but these few items mayunder-represent factors explaining alcohol-related aggression. Lindman and Lang(1994) developed a 6-item measure of beliefs about alcohol-related aggressionwhere respondents were asked about changes after drinking in verbal aggression,physical aggression, irritability, boisterousness, argumentativeness and attentionseeking. The brevity of Lindman and Lang’s (1994) measure is restrictive andsingle-item indices preclude proper measurement of the alcohol-violence facetsproposed here. A more comprehensive assessment would provide a richer,and potentially more reliable, index of alcohol-related aggression in individuals,and may prove useful as a risk predictor, assist in the identification of treatmentneeds and be useful in treatment outcome evaluation. We decided, therefore,to create the Alcohol-related Aggression Questionnaire.
