Summary

    About This Product

    BY JEREMY P. SHAPIRO, PHD

    The AGVQ measures the attitudes of young people, ages 6 to 29, toward guns, physical aggression, and interpersonal conflict. Composed of just 26 items and written at a third-grade reading level, this unique self-report inventory can be administered in just 5 to 10 minutes.

    AGVQ items focus on violence-related issues, with an emphasis on guns. (The test form is titled “What’s Your Opinion?”) In addition to a total score, the test yields scores for the following subscales:

    • Aggressive Response to Shame
    • Comfort With Aggression
    • Excitement
    • Feelings of Power/Safety 

    AGVQ scores correlate with student and teacher reports of aggressive behavior and interpersonal problems. The test complements instruments that focus on behavior by providing information about internal processes underlying aggression, as well as violence potential that has not yet been manifested in action. For clinicians who do need a measure of aggressive behavior, the AGVQ Kit includes an Aggressive Behavior Checklist (ABC).

    Used in mental health, juvenile justice, and school settings, the AGVQ lets you accurately target intervention and prevention programs. And, following intervention, it serves as a measure of program effectiveness. Quick and inexpensive, the AGVQ is an important addition to any program intended to reduce violence.
