Highlighting the need to develop culturally sensitive, indigenous measures that cut across disciplinary boundaries and professions, Family Measurement in India explores issues surrounding the assessment of the validity of measurement scales used in studying family and marriage. This book brings together contributions from psychology, psychiatry, counseling, and social work to present an overview of current approaches to family measurement and to critically review existing standardized measures and literature. Both researchers and practitioners in the many chapters advocate a shift from a purely quantitative to a qualitative approach to family assessment, while emphasizing the development of multidisciplinary and culturally appropriate measurement techniques. A number of contributors make a case for grounding measurement tools within a given theoretical and conceptual framework, whereas others point to the importance of incorporating a gender-sensitive perspective when constructing tools. This pioneering and truly cross-disciplinary examination of measurement issues in family research in India will be an essential reference for professionals and academics in a large number of fields, including sociology, psychology, family studies, and social work.
