Family Adjustment Scales

Several of our short-form assessment scales focus on problems in family relationships. It is very important to understand that our assessment scales are not measures of psychopathology. We regard all of our client assessment scales as measures of personal and social functioning. They also can be regarded as measures of problems in living but they are not designed as measures of psychopathology.

Our family relationship scales are listed below.
