The Parenting Stress Index--Clinical Trials.
Abidin, R. R.
The Parenting Stress Index (PSI) is a clinical and research self-report instrument designed to identify mother-child systems which are under stress and to indicate the sources of stress. It is based on the research literature in child development, parent functioning, and stress. The normative sample for the PSI consisted of 470 mothers with at least one child under three years of age. Norms and factor analyses for this sample are presented. Reliability coefficients and some preliminary findings on the validity of the PSI are reported. Possible problems with the PSI are discussed and clinical benefits are suggested. (Author/BW)
