Abstract

The main objective of the present study was the translation of The Attribution Questionnaire (AQ-27) into Persian language (AQ-27-P), and analysis of psychometric properties for use in Persian-speaking population and to evaluate the responsibility and dangerousness models of mental illness stigma. 600 adults were selected through the quota sampling method from general population of Tehran city (Iran). The study conducted the translation/back-translation to translate the questionnaire and provide its Content validity. Cronbach’s alpha coefficient was examined to evaluate the reliability of the AQ-27-P. Test–retest reliability was assessed using an intraclass correlation coefficient. Structural Equation Modeling was used to test the responsibility and dangerousness models of stigma. The internal consistency of AQ-27-P was satisfactory (α = .88), ranging from .82 to .93. Test–retest reliability showed acceptable results for the total score (ICC = 0.74). All the fit indices relatively confirmed responsibility and dangerousness models of stigma, and all AQ-27 items loaded significantly into the corresponding latent factors. Unexpectedly, the results of the dangerousness model showed that fear had a negative relation with avoidance responses. The AQ-27-P is a standardized questionnaire with admissible psychometric properties, which can be used to assess stigmatizing attitudes in Persian-speaking populations.
