Assessments to improve Parent-Child Relationship

A healthy relationship between a parent and child is essential for the healthy development and well-being of both the child and parent. Our range of assessments measure family communication, parent-child relationship, adjustment issues and much more. The assessments provide honest feedback, many times illuminating issues that are not focused on in the relationship. The results of these assessments help to provide useful insights which allow parents to see things from a different perspective

Assessment No. Assessment Name Assessment Description
A006 Parent Child Relationship Inventory (PCRI) The Parent-Child Relationship Inventory assesses parents’ attitudes toward parenting and toward their children. It explicitly measures the attitudes of both mothers and fathers. The PCRI is a 78-item, self-report questionnaire that can be administered to either an individual or a group. Some items present general attitudes towards being a parent, and others are intended to elicit responses specific to a parent’s relationship with a particular child. The items are arranged in scales that reflect major features of parenting and the parent-child relationship.

Age: Parents of children between 3 years and 15 years of age
Duration: One hour

A007 Parenting Stress Index, Fourth Edition (PSI-4) The PSI-4 measures stress in the parent-child system based on the parent’s perception of child’s characteristics, the personal characteristics of the parent, and the interaction between the child and parent. It is used as a screening and triage measure for evaluating the parenting system and identifying issues that may lead to problems in the child’s or parent’s behavior. The PSI helps clinicians identify specific problem areas and strengths in relation to the child, the parent, and the family system.

Age: Parents of children between from 1 month to 12 years

Duration: One hour

A009 The Parent Report Card Plus for Children and Teens The Parent Report Card lets children grade their parents on everything from keeping secrets to helping with homework. Available in child and teen versions, the Parent Report Card gives youngsters a structured and acceptable way to express their feelings and it provides the kind of honest feedback that is hard to come by, often illuminating issues that parents don’t realize are important. While the child is filling out the Report Card, many parents choose to grade themselves as well and later compare marks. This process often shows how the parent’s perceptions can differ from those of the child.

Age: 7 years to 17 years of age

Duration: One hour per session
