شرح
This assessment measures the frequency with which peers or friends shout‚ curse‚ or hit their parents; or are recipients of these behaviors from their parents. Questions are asked during a one-on-one interview.
 
This instrument can be found on pages 191-192 of Measuring Violence-Related Attitudes‚ Behaviors‚ and Influences Among Youths: A Compendium of Assessment Tools‚ available online at:http://www.cdc.gov/violenceprevention/pdf/YV_Compendium.pdf .
 
Students aged 8-18.
 
The number of “A” items to which the respondent answered “yes” are summed. Opened ended questions are not scored. For those respondents who scored at least 1‚ the frequency is calculated by averaging the answers for the “B” or “C” items (How often?). Point values are assigned as follows:
Rarely = 1
Occasionally = 2
Regularly = 3
A high score indicates a high level of exposure to aggressive family behavior.
