CRISP-Psychometric Assessment of Postdivorce Stress/Adjustment in Children.
Aronson, David M.; Baum, Steven K.
A new psychometric instrument for measuring the impact of divorce on elementary school age children was developed: the Child's Report of the Impact of Separation by Parents (CRISP). This structured projective test was specifically designed to assess children's postdivorce stress/adjustment. An initial version of the CRISP was administered to 99 Los Angeles area children. The postdivorce custodial parent completed a companion measure, the Parent Questionnaire, and the Louisville Behavior Check List. The CRISP demonstrated minimal levels of reliability and validity which were sufficient to warrant its continued development. Suggestions for future refinement of this new instrument are made in order to obtain more truly satisfactory demonstrations of the CRISP's reliability and validity. (Author)
