Abstract:
The Cohesion, Expressiveness and Conflict subscales from the Family Environment Scale were compared to the Language and Social Development subscales from the Denver II utilizing a sample of families in treatment for having a substance abusing parent. An analysis was conducted to determine the relationship between these variables and to explore their relationship to various risk factors the families were experiencing. In support of previous research the relationships between the variables was relatively low. A ceiling effect may have influenced the results as most of the children achieved high scores on their developmental assessments. The results also showed that the predictability and discriminant ability of the variables is limited. An initial and exploratory analysis was conducted with two new instruments created for the project, the Parent Questionnaire and the Child Rating Scale.
