Abstract

The purpose of the present research was to develop child abuse potential inventories as a screening tool. The sample was 248 families who were all financially supported by Chinese Children's Fund. Kaohsiung Family Helper. One of the inventories selected, that was translated into Chinese by the expert committee, was the Child Abuse Potential Inventory developed by Milner. The internal consistency and test-retest reliabilities obtained by this research were as good as Milner's and basic interpretation of four factors was found to be was consistent with Milner's data. The other inventory developed by the expert committee was the Child Abuse Potential Interview used by social workers to interview caretakers. Having completed the questionnaire social workers rated 15 items, i.e. immaturity, lack of parenting skills, unrealistic expectancy, social isolation, unresolved affective needs, abused experiences, crisis, substance abuse etc. The coefficients of correlation between these two inventories were 0.20-0.37, respectively, which indicated that these inventories assessed abuse potential trait and uniqueness. Therefore, these inventories were considered both highly applicable.
