Hogrefe are pleased to announce the distribution of the Parenting Stress Index™, Fourth Edition (PSI™-4) by Richard R. Abidin, EdD. Designed to evaluate the level and impact of stress in the parent-child relationship, the PSI™-4 focuses on three major domains of the stressor source: child characteristics, parent characteristics, and situational life stress.
The PSI™-4 has been updated with the following:
- Improved psychometric characteristics of individual items and updated item wording to more clearly tap into the target construct or behavioural pattern. The original structure has been retained.
- Analysis of validation studies conducted within a variety of foreign populations, including Chinese, Portuguese, French Canadian, Finnish and Dutch, indicate that the PSI is a robust measure that maintains its validity with diverse non-English speaking cultures.
- Expanded norms are organised by each year of child age. Percentiles—the primary interpretive framework for the PSI™-4—and T-scores are also provided.
