The Maternal Characteristics Scale: A Cross Validation.
Polansky, Norman A.; And Others
Child Welfare, v71 n3 p271-80 May-Jun 1992
A device for organizing practitioners' observations, the Maternal Characteristics Scale is used here to identify traits that distinguish samples of Caucasian neglectful mothers from those who are not neglectful. This replication of the scale supported earlier findings that relatedness, impulse control, confidence, and verbal accessibility were associated with vulnerability to becoming neglectful. (BB)
