Designed for use with mothers or fathers of 3- to 15-year-old children, the Parent-Child Relationship Inventory (PCRI) gives you a clear, quantified description of the parent-child relationship. It also identifies specific areas in which problems may occur.
The PCRI includes 78 items covering seven distinct scales:
In addition, two validity scales alert you to the possibility that the parent is responding inconsistently or portraying the parent-child relationship in an unrealistically positive light.
The PCRI can be hand-scored, or computer scored. If you choose computer scoring, you can use the PC Answer Sheets in place of the Autoscore Form.
The PCRI is useful in child custody evaluation, family therapy, parent training, and child abuse assessment.
