Measuring Adaptation in Ministers' Families: The Modified Family Adaptation Scale.
Ostrander, Diane L.; Henry, Carolyn S.
A modification of the Family Adaptation Scale of Antonovsky and Sourani (1988), was developed for assessing the adaptation of ministers' families. A sample of 317 individuals (ministers, spouses, and children aged 8 to 18) from 135 protestant ministers' families was used to test the scale. The self-report questionnaire was tested for internal reliability. Tests for construct validity, concurrent validity, and internal consistency reliability supported the use of the scale for measuring adaptation in ministers' families. Availability of such a measure provides information about how effectively ministers' families see their internal functioning and relations with church and community. One table presents principal components information. (Contains 13 references.) (SLD)
