Abstract: The study consisted of three phases. In the first phase, we translated the Assessment of Interpersonal Problem Solving Skills (AIPSS) from English to Chinese (CAIPSS), studied the Chinese version's cultural relevance and re-edited the film. A qualified translator translated the package from English to Chinese. Another independent qualified translator backward-translated the materials. An expert panel with 14 experienced clinicians was formed to assess the cultural relevancy of the package. All of them stated that the Chinese version was more culturally relevant. Given the preceding, a culturally relevant CAIPSS was finally developed for use by Hong Kong clinicians. The second phase was to evaluate the reliability of the CAIPSS. Some 30 participants (16 males, 14 females) with schizophrenia were recruited for this study. Internal consistency, test–retest reliability and inter-rater reliability were studied. Results indicated good to excellent internal consistency, excellent inter-rater reliability, and good test–retest reliability. The third phase was the study of convergent validity with another group of 30 participants (13 males, 17 females) with schizophrenia. Results show that CAIPSS had good convergent validity with scales measuring similar constructs. To conclude, this assessment package is user-friendly with good psychometric properties. Local clinicians should feel comfortable using it as an integral part of their daily practice to examine their client's social skills.
