The Parent Adolescent Relationship Questionnaire (PARQ) examines the relationships between adolescents (11-18 years) and parents and enables you to plan effective treatments through an understanding of the multifaceted adolescent-parent relationship.
It allows clinicians to emphasise problem-solving and communication skills, cognitive restructuring of extreme beliefs and distorted thinking, and/or specific problems in family functioning in subsequent interventions.
The PARQ can be used to monitor the effectiveness of individual and family interventions through periodic re-administration, as an outcome measure in treatment effectiveness research, and as a process measure in family interaction, adolescent development, and theoretical research.
The PARQ Parent Response Booklet is used by the parent to mark their answers (on the contained Answer Sheet). Instructions for completing the PARQ are provided for the respondent.
Located under the Answer Sheet is a Scoring Sheet, which is used by the examiner to score the PARQ.
