Design of an Assessment of Caregivers' Impulsive Feelings to Commit Elder Abuse
Lee, Minhong; Kolomer, Stacey
Research on Social Work Practice, v17 n6 p729-735 2007
Objective: This study aims to identify the psychometric properties of the Impulsive Feelings to Commit Elder Abuse (IFCEA) scale. Method: The sample included 387 South Korean family caregivers for their older family members with disabilities. Results: The internal consistency of the IFCEA was very good, and claims for the construct validity were demonstrated. Accordingly, the confirmatory factor analysis of the IFCEA confirmed that the scale had two factors: emotional abuse and physical abuse. Conclusion: The IFCEA can be used by professionals to measure caregivers' impulses to commit elder abuse as an early assessment in the caregiving relationship. (Contains 5 tables and 1 figure.)
