The MEAQ measures specific avoidance strategies such as distress aversion and distraction or suppression that might be employed to escape or avoid aversive private events. The authors report stronger psychometric properties and assessment of broader content related to EA. The purpose of the present study was to methodologically examine the predictive validity of the AAQ-II and the MEAQ in relation to posttraumatic stress symptoms (PTSS) and problematic behaviors.
Comparisons between the AAQ-II and MEAQ in their relative contributions to predicting a likely PTSD diagnosis were made. Given the MEAQs item content involving specific avoidance strategies that conceptually map onto the EA construct, it was hypothesized that the MEAQ would offer incremental specificity above and beyond the AAQ-II in predicting PTSS and problematic behaviors.
