How to Measure Closeness in Relationships- Line Scale of Closeness

  Line Scale of Closeness (LSC) The Line Scale of Closeness (LSC) is a simple measure that can be used in clinical or research settings. In a clinical setting, psychotherapists and clients can explore any barriers to closeness and discuss how the level of closeness has changed over time. The LSC may also be used to identify progress toward counseling goals. To compare changes over time or differences between groups, use a standardized line length such as 7-inches or 18-cm.  On each end of the line, identify the client or participant and on the opposite end of the line, identify the person who is the subject of feeling close to or distant from. Ask the client or participant to place an X on the line to indicate how close they feel toward the other person.

Experiences in Close Relationships-Relational Structures

  SCALE NAME:   Experiences in Close Relationships-Relational Structures  (ECR-RS) AUTHORS : Fraley and others  The ECR-RS is a measure of adult attachment that includes four 9-item subscales for mother, father, romantic partner, and best friend attachment ( Fraley et al. , 2011a). Statements on the ECR-RS are rated on a 7-point scale (1 = strongly disagree ; 7 = strongly agree ).   Sample items from the ECR-RS   I find it easy to depend on this person. I often worry that this person doesn't really care for me.   Reliability values   “In our research, the ECR-RS has proven to be quite useful. The test-retest reliability (over 30 days) of the individual scales are approximately .65 for the domain of romantic relationships (including individuals who experienced breakups during the 30-day period) and .80 in the parental domain.” ( Chris-Fraley, n.d.)   Scale alpha values exceed .90 for each scale, according to Chris-Fraley .   Finding the ECR-RS Questionn

Marriage & Divorce Rates by Age and Year

Two charts illustrate how the divorce rate and the remarriage rate in the United States vary across seven age groups. See the captions in the charts for the sources of these data. The rate of divorce is much higher for younger persons than for older persons but the rate of divorce has declined among younger persons than for older persons for the two-year comparison—1990 and 2015. Remarriage rates are also much higher for younger persons but there is a significant drop since 1990 for younger persons compared to the relatively stable rate for older persons. What is not obvious in these data are changes in people living together. About Creating Surveys and understanding  Applied Statistics... FIND my books on AMAZON
