Abstract: This research involved translating the Assessment of Interpersonal Problem Solving Skills (AIPSS) from English to Chinese. The translation included topics such as the translated version's cultural relevance and establishing the instrument's psychometric properties. The research was conducted in two phases. The first phase was translating the AIPSS (CAIPSS) assessment package, studying the Chinese version's cultural relevance and film's re-edition. 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 had finally been developed for use by Hong Kong clinicians. The second phase was the evaluating the psychometric properties of the CAIPSS. Some 30 participants (16 male; 14 female) with schizophrenia were recruited for this study. Internal consistency, test retest reliability and inter-rater reliability were studied. The scorings indicated good to excellent internal consistency. Good reliability was indicated for the test-retest and inter-rater reliability components. This assessment package is user-friendly with good psychometric properties. Local clinicians should feel comfortable using it as a part of their daily practice to examine their client's social skills.
