A Measure of Filial Anxiety regarding Anticipated Care of Elderly Parents.
Cicirelli, Victor G.
Gerontologist, v28 n4 p478-82 Aug 1988
Factor analysis of instrument administered to sample of adult children (N=71) generated two dimensions: FAA (filial anxiety A), anxiety over anticipated caregiving role, and FAB (filial anxiety B), anxiety over parent's anticipated decline. Both were internally consistent. In second sample (N=53), validity was evidenced because FAA was related to childrens' resources, and FAB to attachment to parents. (Author/ABL)
