3. Résumé


« This paper reports the translation and preliminary validation process of the Psychologically Violent Parental Practices Inventory (PVPPI). Findings of the original study had suggested a coherent two-factor structure, good construct validity, and satisfactory internal consistency. The psychometric properties of this translation seem to reproduce those of the original French inventory. On the whole, PVPPI appears to be a promising tool that could find practical, as well as scientific applications. » (p. 71) « [T]he PVPPI provides a detailed description of many parental behaviors implicated in the dynamics of psychological violence toward children. » (p. 79)
