VICENTE, Schwanny Roberta Costa Rambalducci Mofati; RAMOS, Fabiana Pinheiro  and  PAULA, Kely Maria Pereira de. Translation and Cross-Cultural Adaptation of the Parents as Social Context Questionnaire. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2019, vol.18, n.1, pp. 41-49. ISSN 1677-0471.

This article describes the process of cross-cultural adaptation of the two versions (parents and child) of the Parents as Social Context Questionnaire (PSCQ), an instrument that assesses the parental influence on child coping through six dimensions: warmth, rejection, structure, chaos, autonomy support and coercion. Two specialists in English language performed the translation. Three judges evaluated the language clarity, practical relevance and theoretical relevance of the 54 items (24 in the child version, 30 in the parent version) of the instrument. The Content Validity Coefficient presented, in both versions, substantial (0.60-0.80) or almost perfect (0.80-1.00) classifications for all items. The questionnaire was applied with 60 hospitalized children (M = 9.6 years) and their caregivers (M = 34.9 years). The dimensions with higher means were structure, autonomy support and warmth (parent version); and warmth, autonomy support and structure (child version). Further research is necessary to continue the validation of the instrument for the Brazilian population.
