Thomas, Volker; Olson, David H.
Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, v19 n2 p159-75 Apr 1993
Examined validity, reliability, and curvilinearity of Clinical Rating Scale and tested scale's ability to discriminate between clinical families and nonclinical families on family cohesion, adaptability, and communication. Data from two groups of problem families and two control groups supported curvilinear hypothesis that problem families are more frequently extreme on both ends of family cohesion and adaptability dimensions.
