The Parenting Stress Index, Fourth Edition (PSI-4) is designed to evaluate the magnitude of stress in the parent-child system. It is a 120-item inventory that focuses on three major domains of stress: child characteristics, parent characteristics, and situational/demographic life stress.
The PSI-4 can be administered and scored by hand, via scoring software, or online (PARiConnect).
The PSI-4 Software Item/Response Booklet allows for efficient data entry into the PSI-4 Software Portfolio (PSI-4-SP).
The convenient Software Item/Response Booklet contains both the item booklet and the answer sheet, all in one, allowing the respondent to complete the assessment with the one Booklet.
The clinician then uses this data, entering it into the PSI-4-SP for scoring and report generation.
