Handbook of Family Measurement Techniques: Volumes 1 - 3 (Boxed Set)
Volume 1 Abstracts
Volume 2 Abstracts
Volume 3 Instruments & Index
This three-volume set is intended for researchers, clinicians, and students in the family and related fields. Volume 1 includes abstracts of 976 family measurement instruments cited in the published literature 1929-1986. Volume 2 picks up where the initial volume leaves off, with abstracts of 367 instruments published 1987-1996. Abstracts in Volume 1 and 2 are preceded by overviews, written by authorities in family studies that organize and review the instruments in each chapter. Volume 3 contains 168 of the instruments abstracted in Volume 2, reproducing them in full along with their scoring instructions. Volume 3 also provides author, instrument title, and subject indexes for all three volumes. An attempt has been made to include instruments in the Handbook that are representative of all areas of family studies, that are conceptually and psychometrically sound and that have been used to evaluate diverse populations.
