Summary Written by a nurse-social worker team, this book examines nearly 20 instruments for measuring family functioning. The measures are grouped by level - well-established, moderately established, and those early in development. The discussion for each includes a history of the instrument, an overview of the model and its conceptual framework; a description of the instrument; information on scoring, reliability, and validity; sample items; a description of its sensitivity to cross-cultural issues, gender, and variant family structures; a summary of studies using the instrument; and information on where to get the instrument. In recognition of the interdisciplinary nature of the study of the family, the measures described are derived from the disciplines of nursing psychiatry, psychology, social work, and sociology.
