The Parent-Child Relationship Inventory (PCRI) provides a clear picture of how parents feel about their children and the task of parenting. A 78 item self-report inventory designed for use with mothers or fathers of 3- to 15-year-old children, the PCRI gives you a clear, quantified description of the parent-child relationship.
Because many fathers now take an active role in parenting, PCRI items are appropriate for either parent-and separate norms are provided for mothers and fathers. Given its specific focus on parenting attitudes, the PCRI is highly useful in child custody evaluation, family therapy, parent training, and child abuse assessment.
The PCRI can be scored by hand or via the Scoring Software.
The PCRI PC Answer Sheet provides space for basic demographic information, then the 78 PCRI items. The respondent fills out the Sheet, and the clinician then enters these responses into the PCRI CD Rom Software for scoring and generation of interpretive reports.
