Read the full product description

Developed by the authors of the BASC-2, the Parenting Relationship Questionnaire (PRQ) is designed to capture a parent’s perspective on the parent-child relationship.

The PRQ has two forms which can be completed in 10-15 minutes by the mother, father or other primary caregiver:

  • Preschool (ages 2-5)
  • Child and adolescent (ages 6-18).

Features of the PRQ

  • Multiple dimensions that are relevan to the development of strong and healthy parent-child relationships
  • Normative samples, for both female and male raters, that are closely matched to US Census population estimates
  • Items written at a third-grade reading level
  • Validity indexes that can be used to detect careless or exaggerated responding
  • Three types of record forms: hand-scored, computer-entry, and scannable
  • Computer software that provides detailed single- or multiple-administration reports, including progress reports and multirater reports that can be used to compare mother and father settings.

Uses of the PRQ

  • The PRQ was designed to provide information that is useful across a variety of settings and applications, including:
  • Educational psychological evaluations as a complementary tool to other assessments to determine an appropriate intervention plan based on parental involvement.
  • Clinical and paediatric evaluations where parent involvement is key to an effective treatment plan.
  • Family counselling evaluations to assess different parenting relationships, beliefs, and practices among parents or other caregivers.
  • Intervention/treatment programs where parents are involved in the treatment and therapy process.
