Information for Karitane Clients:
Karitane Parenting Confidence Scale:
The Karitane Parenting Confidence scale (KPCS) is a 15-item self report instrument that measures parents’ confidence in caring for their infant. The scale includes a preamble, thus minimal instruction is required on the part of the clinician / researcher when administering it.
This scale has important clinical and research applications, as an increasing number of studies over the past 20 years have highlighted that parenting confidence perceptions – often called ‘perceived parenting self-efficacy’ (PPSE) – represent a key element of parents’ subjective experience, and are an important resiliency or protective factor (Jones & Prinz, 2005).
We like professionals who want to register with us first. That way we can keep you up to date with any changes and we can assess it’s effectiveness. Please fill out the KPCS Registration Form and send it to the Karitane Education Department by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax it to (+61)(02) 9794 2323.
