CARVALHO, Thaís Ramos de  and  BARHAM, Elizabeth Joan. Instruments for assessing coparenting: A comparison of their psychometric properties. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.15, n.2, pp. 207-215. ISSN 1677-0471.

Coparenting involves the interactions that occur between the mother and father of a child, to decide how to deal with the tasks involved in raising their child. Based on a review of Brazilian publications, no coparenting measurements were found for use in Brazil. A coparenting measurement may contribute to testing theoretical models of coparenting, as well as creating a tool for psychologists to evaluate coparenting relationships. Thus, the objective of the current study was to compare instruments for the assessment of coparenting described in the international literature. Via a systematic search in electronic databases, 35 articles about the validation of eight coparenting instruments were located. After analyzing the psychometric evidence for each instrument, one can conclude that there is satisfactory evidence of the reliability, internal structure and external validity of three psychometric instruments, which can be adapted for use in Brazil

Keywords : coparenting; psychometry; instrument; validity.
