Please can some one help me to get the Parent and Peer Influence Scale (PPI) for my work. I actually want to know the Psychometric properties and then to see if I can use it in my new work. Looking forward to your comments.
I am a pediatric anesthesiologist and am interested in the perioperative outcomes of children with autism. It is a well known fact that children with normal development can have developmental regression after exposure to anesthesia. Different scales have been used to evaluate their post hospitalization outcomes.No such scales exist for children with autism and other developmental problems. I would like to develop such validated scale but am straggling with identifying the wright questions to ask. Any recommendations are welcome. Also any suggestions how to evaluate them.

I need to calculate a composite reliability using three different point scales. Is there any pre- requirement for this and which statistical package I should use for this (AMOS)?
Thanks in advance
Hi I am planning to conduct a within subject study: where we are trying to test the effectiveness of an intervention: the study will test participants on 3 occasions i.e. Time 1 (baseline without the intervention)
Time 2 (with the intervention)
Time 3(with the intervention)
I am testing the (i)Parental distress using the subscale from (PSI short form)
(ii) Perceived stress scale (PSS)
(iii) Brief COPE
I want to see if the intervention affects the stress levels and if there is a relationship between coping and stress. What would be the best analysis to conduct to find this out?
Any help will be much appreciated!!
Working on a behavioral therapy protocol and looking for a psychometric assessment tool to measure maturity in adolescents and young adults up to 24 years in age.
I am trying reactions of peptide with organic molecule in phosphate buffer (pH 7.0) .But while monitoring the reaction by LCMS due to higher salt concentration ,I am not getting the Mass spectrum. The solubility of peptides in water is high.Reaction concentration was 0.5mM.To dissolve the organic molecule 30% DMSO is also used
What can be an effective strategy to approach their mental framework? I am trying to focus on developing a way in which not too much teting is required, yet we can get a greater sense of the individual differences so that the quality of life can be improved for them.
First, I intend to use the Student Moral and Performance Character Scale (MORC & PERC) in Culture of Excellence & Ethics Assessment (CEEA). However, I figured out that it is a school assessment rather than an individual assessment. So, I wonder is there any other instruments that are more suitable for this age group (aged 6-8) on assessment their moral character after character education? If possible, I would like to have the student and teacher test forms. Thanks so much!
For a study, I’m about to use a french version (translation Eng>French and back translation) of the Friendship Quality Scale (FQS; Bukowski, Hoza & Boivin, 1994) for students with Asperger syndrome in mainstream secondary schools.
By using this tool, my goal is to see how those students perceive their relationship with the person they choose as “best friend”.
Because I’m interested in the personal view of the student, I don’t need to confirm if this relationship is reciprocal in all ways by the person identified as “best friend”. Moreover, it would be difficult to ask this “best friend” to complete the questionnaire if (s)he’s not participating at the study. I have to clarify that FQS is one of the tools I am using in this study. An important part will be semi-directive interviews with those students.
Nevertheless, I would like to collect your opinions about the relevance of using the FQS without involving a dyad student / best friend.
Thank you for your help.
In Martha Stout's book, The Sociopath Next Door, she writes "Children who suffer from attachment disorder are impulsive and emotionally cold and sometimes dangerously violent towards their parents, siblings, playmates, and pets. They tend to steal, vandalize, + start fires, + they often spend time in detention facilities when they are young + in jail when they become adults, just like sociopaths".
Is anyone familiar with this phenomenon?
So far I have only stumbled across one study which examined the mentalization skills of children with parents with a methamphetamine addiction.
Also all studies, papers discussing mentalization in therapy sessions with children and adolescents are greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Given Fabbri et al. (2014), has anyone created a simultaneous computational neurogenetics analyses
of GWD-CGA-fMRI public accessible data to elucidate neural substrates (e.g., Miller et al., 2015) to various DSM-5 Axis I disorders to inform etiology of developmental psychopathology to inspire innovative epigenetic studies to prevent development of psychiatric disorders [(e.g., reversing an underlying neural substrate to behavioural inhibition (Bellgowan et al., 2015) via a proactive disinhibition intervention (e.g., play therapy) to prevent development of internalizing disorders in children)]?

I teach behavioral genetics to undergraduate psychology students and I was struck by the genetic findings for SLI. They seem more specific and well-replicated than for many other phenotypes; for which we know that although there is considerable genetic variance the current state of our replicated findings is poor. I would love to hear other of results others find convincing and compelling for phenotypes of interest to psychology students.
Are there any interventions to enhance the self-determined behaviour of children between 2 and 5? Can you think of anywhere I can look. All the interventions I am finding are for 'school age children'. Thank you.
I expect to find a negative affect on self-determination for children with low levels of social competence as a result of either family circumstances: aggressive parenting, siblings in trouble with the law, parent in prison or died, but also living in poverty, an area of economic disadvantage.

How maternal stressful condition affects offspring's cognitive ability and behavior alteration? and what is the molecular mechanism involving this cognitive impairment?
Hello everyone, I want to make a longitudinal investigation in a sample of 7-11 years old Chinese children about Psychopathic Traits and Callous-Unemotional Traits and their contextual factor, for example parental behavior. Children’ parents and teachers will be surveyed. I plan use “The Child Problematic Traits Inventory”, a new measure to assess psychopathic personality in children. Meanwhile, Alabama Parenting Questionnaire also will be used. Because I have limited experience in Psychopathic Traits, so I want relevant expert give me some suggestions. If you are interested in this project, maybe we can collaborate in some kind.
Thanks in advance!
My observations among patients of a mental health centre is that patients that report chidhood physical maltreatment are more probable to report an history of suicide attempts. I see also differences in dysfunctional patterns of personality
This is partly a philosophical question as well as empirical. Action at a distance in space is one thing. Action at a distance in time is less well discussed in science and philosophy.
Teaching strategies that really benefit teachers to be effective and those teaching strategies that are not too taxing for teachers to implement in the classroom?
I have found some studies using the selected aspects of Kernberg's work, e.g. levels of personality organization but I am still looking for more references, especially for the developmental concepts.
The question is not about correlated factors (i.e. maltreatment, abuse or neglect, parenting and ordinal position) but about developmental factors.
In your research, maternal emotional withdraw is associated with increased risk of suicidal behavior and self-injury in adolescence. I wondered if self perception as a burden (for example, in the context of a physical or mental illness) may occur more readily in subjects with that experience (for example, in connection with a self scheme as unworthy of attention and care), be more difficult to tolerate and if it could influence suicidal behavior (as predict the model of Joiner of suicidal behaviour in which self perception as a burden is a central factor).
