Background and Purpose: Behavioral disorders are prevalent and disabling, which cause many problems for family and children and are accompayning with social negative consequences. Present study aims to develop a scale of psychological pathology for children-parent form.
Method: An initial item pool of 190 was generated and after first edition 125 items were selected to comprise the preliminary version of the scale. Population includes parents of elementary school students in six states of Alborz, Eastern Azerbaijan, Sistan & Baluchestan, and Fars & Khorasan Razavi. Sample includes about 100 parents in each state which were randomly chosen from two cities in each state. In sum, sample consists of 600 parents.
Results: Results from item analysis supported the exclusion of 14 items. Factor analysis with generalized least squares method and equamax rotation was performed on the item responses and yielded a 6 factor solution which is consistent with the theoretical framework. Reliability coefficients of subscales ranged between 0.65 (self-regulation) and 0.90 (homework deficiency). Evaluation of correlation coefficients between items and subscales illustrated those coefficients to vary between 0.17 (item 101) and 0.73 (item 37).
Conclusion: Findings suggest that the preliminary scale of psychological health for children-parent form has adequate psychometric properties, and further research can improve it.
