BAPTISTA, Makilim Nunes et al. Child-Adolescent Version of the Perception of Family Support Inventory. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2020, vol.19, n.4, pp. 441-450. ISSN 1677-0471.

This study aimed to estimate evidence of validity based on the internal structure and accuracy of the Inventário de Percepção de Suporte Familiar (IPSF - Perception of Family Support Inventory) in children and adolescents and to obtain a brief version of the instrument. Participants were, respectively, 355 students (M=12.6; SD=1.2) and 453 students (M=12.3; SD=1.4) of the 6th to 9th years of public elementary school. The exploratory factor analysis indicated a structure composed of three factors: Autonomy, Adaptation and Affective-Consistent, corroborating the results of the adult IPSF. Accuracy indices, Ω between 0.726 and 0.881, complemented the adequate psychometric properties of this version. Confirmatory factor analysis was performed for the short version of the IPSF-IJ, with 18 items, indicating replicability of the internal structure and maintenance of the accuracy indicators, Ω between 0.806 and 0.878. It was concluded that both versions of the instrument are adequate measures of the perception of family support in children and adolescents.
