“Development and validation of the Family Law DOORS”: Correction to McIntosh, Wells, and Lee (2016).

Reports an error in “Development and validation of the Family Law DOORS” by Jennifer E. McIntosh, Yvonne Wells and Jamie Lee (Psychological Assessment, 2016[Nov], Vol 28[11], 1516-1522). In the article, the “Adult not coping” scale in Table 1 is missing the item “Major worries about coping.” (The following abstract of the original article appeared in record 2016-04479-001.) When former spouses experience distress and dispute following separation, risks to well-being and to safety are heightened for all family members. Reliable family-wide risk screening is essential. The Family Law DOORS (Detection of Overall Risk Screen) is a 3-part screening framework to assist identification, evaluation, and response to safety and well-being risks in separated families. Uniquely, the Family Law DOORS screens for victimization and perpetration risks and appraises infant and child developmental risk. The Family Law DOORS self-report screening tool is the subject of this report. Internal scale reliability and concurrent and external criterion validity for the Family Law DOORS were estimated with a community sample of 660 separated parents, including 181 mother—father pairs. Overall psychometric properties are strong and demonstrate good potential for the Family Law DOORS to support early risk detection for separating families.
