Abstract

Objective: The purpose of the study was to validate the Parent-Child Conflict Tactics Scale (CTSPC) in Sri Lanka, for use with 12-year old children. Design: A Delphi Process determined the consensual and content validity of the CTSPC. Test-retest reliability and internal consistency were determined by a large and a small group administration. Setting: Professionals from the social and behavioural sciences were the judges in the Delphi Process. Conveniently located schools in the Gampaha District were chosen for determining the test-retest reliability and internal consistency. Measurements: This included original CTSPC and its Sinhala translation, a structured interview schedule and a focus group guide. Results: The Sinhala version of the CTSPC showed adequate consensual and content validity. Its test-retest reliability and internal consistency were satisfactory. The instrument is best administered in small rather than in large groups of children. Conclusion: The Sinhala version of the CTSPC is appropriate to be used with 12-year old Sinhala speaking schoolchildren in Sri Lanka.
