A questionnaire to assess communication behaviors in marriage.

DESCRIPTION: Two forms constitute the inventory: the first to assess own communication behaviors, the second – assessing the partner’s behaviors. Each form contains 30 items, both deal with three main communication dimensions in marriage: support, commitment, and depreciation. The first two can be additionally interpreted in a more detailed way (support or commitment oriented on the overall well-being of the partner, as well as support or commitment oriented on the specific problems of the partner). The examinee takes a stance towards each statement using five-point scale.

RELIABILITY: High indices of internal consistency.

VALIDITY: A comparison was made concerning results of contrast groups: homosexual and heterosexual couples, couples with different duration of the relationship, correlations with a personality questionnaire and inventories assessing parental attitudes, family relations, attachment styles.

NORMS: Created on a basis of results of 3396 examinees differing in age, education, marital history; standard ten, separate for women and men aged 20-60.

APPLICATIONS: For psychologists investigating marriage-related problems – to diagnose weak and strong points of marital communication; for scientific research.
