Social Work Research, v25 n3 p173-84 Sep 2001
Describes development of a questionnaire for evaluating nature and extent of practitioners' fears in working with high-risk youths. Three scales were proposed. A stepwise approach to test construction and validation was used. Predicted relationships between subscales were confirmed, supporting validity of the questionnaire. Internal consistency ranged from moderate to high. Practice implications are discussed. (BF)
