PAI Normative Data in Child Custody Litigants

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

It has previously been shown that child custody litigants perform differently on psychological tests compared to the general population. The present study provides normative data for 200 child custody litigants on the PAI. Results showed that child custody litigants compared to the normative sample scored higher on the Positive Impression Management scale and underreported symptoms on most other clinical scales. There were sex differences where mothers presented as higher in Warmth and lower in Antisocial traits than fathers and the normative population. The norms provide a useful and necessary comparison for psychologists involved in custody evaluations.
