Relational Communication Instrumentation: Validity.
Ayres, Joe; Miura, Steven Y.
The conceptual, construct, and predictive validity of available instruments for coding relational control is considered in this paper. It approaches conceptual validity by offering a logical analysis that compares each instrument with formative ideas in interactional theory. It then advances data concerning the construct and predictive validity of the instruments. The final portion of the paper discusses the results and suggests that the instrument devised by C. E. Sulzki and J. H. Beavin exhibits the strongest overall validity pattern. (Author/FL)
