The Bodyparts Dissatisfaction Scale (Adolescent Girl)

The Body Parts Dissatisfaction Scale (BPDS) to assess bodily discontent in a manner that we believed might be more sensitive to middle-school girls’ experiences of their bodies. In particular, we sought use of a measure that lists body parts in concrete terms but does not prompt responses along a satisfaction–dissatisfaction continuum, as is common among measures of this type. We reasoned that girls of this age may not see themselves (yet) as part of the body dissatisfied norm and we hoped to avoid invoking response bias toward endorsing dissatisfaction (if, perhaps, it might seem more...

Perceived Social Inequity Scale (PSIS-W)

The Perceived Social Inequality Scale for women (PSIS-W) is grounded in the theoretical framework of relative deprivation theory (a more specified variant of social comparison theory) which states that discontent results from recognition of an unfair discrepancy between one's own situation and that of others. Factor analyses of the PSIS-W conducted with samples of college women indicated the presence of six factors: Multiple Roles, Career Competence, Career Encouragement, Physical Appearance, Harassment/Assault, and Academic Role Models.

Children’s Relationship Attribution Measure (CRAM)

The study of children's perceptions of family events has led to increased understanding of their reactions to such events at both theoretical (e.g., Davies & Cummings, 1994; Grych & Fincham, 1990) and empirical levels (e.g., Grych, Seid, & Fincham, 1992; Kurdek & Berg, 1987; Mazur, Wolchik, & Sandier, 1992). This Children's Relationship Attribution Measure (CRAM) assessed children's attributions in parent-child relationships, examined their association with relationship positivity and behavior displayed toward the parent, determined whether depressive symptoms account...

Quality and Safety Self-Efficacy Scale

Nursing is a caring profession, which practices alongside other disciplines. Communication amongst health care personnel has been implicated in the literature as a cause of most patient errors and sentinel events between 1995 and 2006 (American Association of Critical Care Nursing [AACN], 2005; Dillon et al., 2009; Joint Commission, 2012; Wachter, 2010; World Health Organization, 2007). The majority of nursing programs do not include interdisciplinary or collaborative educational experiences in their curricula (Lavin et al., 2001).
