Roehling, Patricia Vincent; Robin, Arthur L.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v54 n5 p693-97 Oct 1986
Evaluated the criterion-related validity of the Family Beliefs Inventory, a new self-report measure of unreasonable beliefs regarding parent-adolescent relationships. Distressed fathers displayed more unreasonable beliefs concerning ruination, obedience, perfectionism, and malicious intent than nondistressed fathers. Distressed adolescents displayed more unreasonable beliefs concerning ruination, unfairness, and autonomy than nondistressed adolescents. There were no differences for mothers. (Author/KS)
