Barry Bricklin, Ph.D.
Reflects The Sensitivity And Effectiveness With Which A Parent Responds To Typical Childcare Situations.
- the critical issues in a given situation;
- adequate solutions;
- the need to communicate in terms understandable to a child;
- the desirability of acknowledging a child’s feelings;
- the importance of the child’s own past history in the present circumstance; and
- the need to pay attention to how the child is responding in order to fine tune one’s own response.
By targeting skills which reflect a parent’s awareness of just what makes a given child unique, the PASS remains faithful to the guiding principle which underlies the Bricklin Associates research approach to custody decision-making: the “meaning” of parental behavior is best understood in terms of a child’s ability to be positively influenced by it. This means that “good” parental communication is communication carefully attuned to the unique manner in which a particular child is able to take in, and profit from that communication.
- Spontaneous Level: the parent’s spontaneous, uninterrupted rsponses to the situations.
- Probe Level One: parental responses to gentle, non-leading questions.
- Probe Level Two: parental responses to very direct questions.
This stratification allows the clinician to draw inferences about which responses are reflective of what the parent would access most readily in a given situation, and what is likely to emerge only under more favorable circumstances.
Time for administration and scoring: Less than one hour (can take as little as 30 minutes after the clinician has gained experience with the PASS).
