Craving Experience Questionnaire (CEQ)

We developed the CEQ to measure key aspects of craving as defined by Elaborated Intrusion theory (Kavanagh, Andrade & May, 2005). The scale can be adapted to cravings for a range of substances. It contains a Strength form to assess intensity of craving at a particular time point (e.g., craving right now, or worst craving episode in the past week) and a Frequency form to assess the frequency of cravings over a particular time period (e.g., last week, or while you were in the lab).

The Craving Experience Questionnaire: A brief, theory-based measure of consummatory desire and craving. Addiction, 109, 728–735.

Plymouth Sensory Imagery Questionnaire (Psi-Q)

A starting point for our research is that imagery is a multi-sensory, embodied mental experience, not merely ‘pictures in the head’. The PSI-Q is a tool for assessing the vividness of such imagery in seven different modalities: visual, auditory, olfactory, gustatory, tactile, bodily sensations (e.g., walking briskly in the cold), and emotion.
