Diagnostic Checklist for Pathogenic Parenting
A search was performed in both the general professional literature and then specifically in the Mental Measurements Yearbook (a professional guide and review of published assessment instruments) regarding the Impact of Parental Conflict Tool in order to review the instrument’s psychometric properties of:
- The underlying theoretical foundations for the instrument’s development;
- The operational definitions used in the instrument’s application;
- The empirical studies demonstrating inter-rater reliability;
- The empirical studies supporting the construct validity, content validity, concurrent validity, or predictive validity of the instrument.Based on this review of the professional literature, there appears to be no information in the professional literature which would support the psychometric properties of this assessment instrument.
