COSTA BALL, Daniel et al. Psychometric psychometric properties of FACES IV: validity study in uruguayan population. Cienc. Psicol. [online]. 2013, vol.7, n.2, pp.119-132. ISSN 1688-4221.

This instrumental study analyses the psychometric characteristics of a scale that evaluates family functioning from the Family Adaptability and Cohesion Evaluation Scale (FACES IV; Olson, 2011), applied to a sample of 356 families, selected through incidental sampling in Montevideo. The factorial structure, reliability and validitiy of the short version, is evaluated. The model of 6 factors that includes two balanced scales (cohesion and flexibility) and four unbalanced scales (chaotic, rigid, disengaged and enmeshed), each with 4 items, is evaluated through Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA). All scales showed satisfactory psychometric properties, the CFA proved an adequate goodness of fit index (RMSEA = .034; CFI = .92; TLI = .91; IFI = .92). This version of the instrument is useful for the research of family functioning. More studies are necessary to improve the adaptation to our culture, through the analysis of content validity of the enmeshed and rigid scales
