SCHMIDT, Vanina; MESSOULAM, Nadia; MOLINA, Maria Fernanda  e  ABAL, Facundo. Towards an argentine version of parents-adolescent communication scale. Interam. j. psychol. [online]. 2008, vol.42, n.1, pp. 41-48. ISSN 0034-9690.

The aim of this work is to present the adaptation process of Parents-Adolescent Communication Scale (PACS) of Barnes and Olson (1982). In the first study, specific procedures for items and construct revision were followed with expert panels' cooperation. The results of such revision are presented, from which first PACS argentine version was generated. In the second study, PACS argentine version was applied to a 591 adolescent heterogeneous sample. Data about construct validity are presented and results are discussed, considering the relevance of generating new conceptual and instrumental developments about human communication.
