After clarifying the operational definition and assessment criteria of crimes of passion, an assessment checklist for incarcerated individuals, “Crimes Due to Passionate Impulse Other-report Checklist”, was developed and its reliability and validity were tested. Sample 1 involved 40 prison guards assessing 15 typical violent dossiers, exploring the checklist’s accuracy, factor structure, and internal consistency. Sample 2 comprised 14 prison guards evaluating 275 offender dossiers, using the UPPS Impulsivity Scale as a benchmark to measure corresponding inmates, examining the checklist’s convergent validity, threshold determination, test-retest reliability, and evaluator reliability. Results indicated that scores for the crimes of passion group were higher than the control group. Exploratory factor analysis supported a single-factor model. The scale demonstrated satisfactory internal consistency, evaluator reliability, and test-retest reliability, meeting psychometric standards. It also showed good convergent and discriminant validity. With robust assessment capabilities, the checklist’s threshold was determined to be 10.5 via ROC (receiver operating characterisitic) curve analysis, positioning it an effective tool for screening inmates committing crimes of passion.

Key words: crime due to passionate impulse, checklist, other-report, reliability, validity


梳理激情犯罪的操作性定义和评估要素, 编制适用于服刑人员的《激情犯罪他评检查表》, 并检验其信效度。样本1招募40名狱警, 评定15份典型暴力卷宗, 探索该检测表的评定准确率、因子结构以及内部一致性。样本2招募14名狱警, 评定275份罪犯卷宗, 将 UPPS冲动性量表等作为校标, 测量对应的服刑人员, 检验该检测表的关联效度、评定阈值、重测和评定者信度。结果表明, 激情犯罪组得分高于对照组; 探索性因素分析结果支持单因素模型, 该量表的内部一致性信度、评定者信度和重测信度均达到心理测量学要求, 同时体现出较好的汇聚和区分效度; 该检查表具有较强的检测效力, 经过接收者操作特征(ROC)曲线分析, 确定其阈值为10.5, 可作为筛查激情犯罪服刑人员的有效工具。
