dc.description.abstractExisting instruments do not appear to satisfactorily measure the impact of parental illness on children's relationships with family and peers, a variable that may contribute significantly to long-term psychosocial outcomes for those who have experienced parental illness. A brief retrospective scale measuring the relational impact of parental illness was developed and validated within a sample of university students who identified as having had a seriously ill parent during childhood or adolescence. Participants responded to items assessing change in relationships with their ill parent, other parent, sibling(s), and peers during the time of parental illness. Analyses of the measure revealed evidence for the expected four-factor structure (Ill Parent, Other Parent, Sibling, and Peer), acceptable fit indices, and strong factor loadings. The measure also demonstrated good internal consistency and convergent validity. This evidence suggests that the Parental Illness Relationship Impact Scale may be successfully used to assess parental illness' perceived impact on childhood relationships.
