Abstract [en]

To investigate reliability and validity of the translated Norwegianversion of the Family Sense of Coherence scale. Background: The Family Senseof Coherence scale measures the global sense of coherence in families and might helphealth professionals to identify vulnerable families and to facilitate the strengtheningof coping strategies in families. Design: Cross-sectional. Methods: In total, 264 parentsof children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and 157parents of children in secondary schools in three municipalities responded to a questionnaireregarding the characteristics of the parent and the child, with four scales:Family Sense of Coherence, Sense of Coherence, Family Assessment Device andWell-being. Statistics with Cronbach alpha, intra-class correlation coefficient, independentsample t-test and Pearson’s correlation coefficient were used to establish thereliability and validity of the scale. Results: Internal consistency with Cronbach’s alphawas acceptable and test-retest reliability with intra-class correlation coefficientwas sufficient. Known-groups test revealed statistical differences between the twogroups of parents as pre-considered and significant correlations between FamilySense of Coherence and Sense of Coherence, Family Assessment Device andWell-being were found. Conclusion: The Norwegian version of Family Sense of Coherencescale can be considered as reliable and valid for the studied population. Relevanceto Clinical Practice: The Family Sense of Coherence scale appears to be anappropriate instrument for evaluating and assessing to find vulnerable families whoare in need of interventions strengthening the family’s resources.
