In measuring efficacy, parents will indicate how able they feel to manage their emotions and parenting tasks. In the first portion of this efficacy measure, adapted from Caprara, Regalia, Scabini, Barbaranelli & Bandura (2004), parents are asked to rate on a scale from 1=not well at all to 5=very well how well they can manage 9 different emotions and tasks. In the second portion of the efficacy section of the parent interview, parents are asked to rate on a scale from 1=nothing to 5=a great deal how much parents feel they are able to perform 6 different parenting tasks.
