The Parent Adolescent Relationship Questionnaire (PARQ) examines the relationships between adolescents and parents and enables you to plan effective treatments through an understanding of the multifaceted adolescent-parent relationship.
Based in behavioural family systems therapy (BFST), the PARQ provides information organized into three domains (Overt Conflict/Skill Deficits, Beliefs, and Family Structure) that can help you determine the best mode of intervention.
The PARQ allows you 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.
In addition, the effectiveness of individual and family interventions can be measured by periodically readministering the PARQ to determine whether significant change has occurred. The PARQ also can be used as an outcome measure in treatment effectiveness research as well as a process measure in family interaction, adolescent development, and theoretical research.
