Primary use / Purpose:
The McGill Friendship Questionnaire – Friendship Functions (MFQ-FF) developed after the authors were involved in research on friendship in childhood and early adolescence (Aboud & Mendelson, 1996). The MFQ-FF seeks to examine 6 distinct friendship functions in late adolescence and adulthood. Individual friendships will vary in the degree to which they fulfill some or all of these functions.
The psychometric properties of the instrument have been examined by Mendelson and Aboud (1997). This unpublished manuscript is available below.
