Info

Automatic Thoughts Questionnaire (ATQ)

The ATQ is a 30-item questionnaire developed to identify and assess the frequency of automatic negative self-statements which are linked to depression. Each item is a negative thought and the respondent is to rate how often the thought has surfaced in the past week on a scale from 1 (not at all) to 5 (all the time).
