Yes References for Construct Validity: In a custody-mediation sample, four of the PCRI scale scores are more than half a standard deviation below the mean of the normative pattern, which would be consistent with problems often seen in families involved in custody disputes.
In a high-risk adolescent sample, PCRI scores were also lower than the mean for the standardization sample.
However, this study was conducted with a brief form of the PCRI. The measure was developed using factor analysis, but the specific analyses and results are not detailed in the manual.
The manual reports that principal components factor analysis, conducted using only White mothers and fathers in the normative sample, resulted in a 3-factor model. No details are provided regarding the factor structure.What is SENSATION SEEKING? What does SENSATION SEEKING mean? SENSATION SEEKING meaning & explanation
Overall, the data provided in the manual regarding the PCRI appear to be questionable because results of factor analysis are not presented, and the PCRI is not compared to a gold standard or a well-known measure of parenting. In addition, when studies are presented, it is unclear which version of the PCRI they used. A German study examining the validity of the PCRI and its usefulness for custody evaluations reported that means for the German sample differed from the American standardization sample, internal consistencies for some scales were lower than those published in the manual, and the factor analysis resulted in a 4-factor solution.
Nevertheless, other studies, not cited in the manual, have used the PCRI and have reported on its correlations with other measures, ability to differentiate between groups, and ability to detect changes related to treatment.
Many of these studies involved diverse ethnic and SES groups. Responses from couples involved in divorce litigation and custody mediation revealed that these parents were more likely to report difficulties in their relationship with their children than did the normative sample.

Likewise, adolescent mothers who reported lower satisfaction with their parenting role were more likely to discipline by means of scolding and physical punishment.
Hence, the PCRI may not accomplish convergent validity for both mothers and fathers.
First, families from diverse backgrounds followed longitudinally would contribute to norms for age-related changes in the parent-child relationship as children mature.
Additionally, norms are not available for differing ethnic or cultural groups. Certain parenting behaviors i. Given the diversity within the United States, alternative family configurations— and an extension of the international use of the PCRI— and representative norms are especially needed for clinical and legal arenas.
Second, research that extends cross-informant convergence is needed to describe the bidirectionality of parent-child relationships and the unique parenting roles of mothers and fathers. The contributing influence includes factors such as the following: Evidence from a longitudinal cross-informant investigation.
