The AAQ was developed as a measure to assess experiential avoidance and psychological inflexibility and it has a single-factor structure. The scale consists of 7-items which statements should be rated on a 7-point Likert scale ranging from 1 (never true) to 7 (always true). This scale reflects the single domain of psychological inflexibility with higher scores indicating greater psychological inflexibility, or experiential avoidance. The Portuguese version of AAQ-II also showed a one-factor structure composed by seven items, a good level of internal consistency and good convergent and discriminant validities between clinical and nonclinical samples.
