DEL PRETTE, Zilda Aparecida Pereira; VILLA, Miriam Bratfisch; FREITAS, Maura Glória de  and  DEL PRETTE, Almir. Temporal stability of the Marital Social Skills Inventory (IHSC). Aval. psicol. [online]. 2008, vol.7, n.1, pp.67-74. ISSN 1677-0471.

This study aimed to test the temporal stability of the Marital Social Skills Inventory (IHSC), a self-report inventory with validity and some other reliability indicators established by previous studies. 54 female and males, most of them (81.5%) of husband-wife couples, completed the inventory in two moments (test and re-test). The results indicated significant and above 0,62 correlations for the general score and for the six factorial scores of this instrument and no significant differences between the test and re-test scores, thus bringing additional evidence for this instrument reliability and accuracy. The usefulness of this scale for the psychological research and practice with couples as well as other further studies are discussed.
