The Conflict TacticsScale-ParentChild (CTS-PC) assesses neglectful, psychologically aggressive, and abusive parenting behaviors and acts. The authors used the subscales for nonviolent discipline, psychological aggression, and physical assault. Four items comprising the assault subscale were not used because of abuse reporting concerns.
