Resumé

The practice of assessing children’s emotional development is fast developing within the field of clinical psychology and family social work. The researcher in cooperation with colleagues has developed a measurement tool, the Emotional Development Scale (EDS), to assess the current emotional functioning level of 4–12-year-olds.

The research design is based on a fixed correlational design with quantitative data and statistical analyses. The main focus of the study is to investigate the reliability and validity of the EDS. A preliminary ad hoc sample (n=213) from Hogrefe Ltd. is correlated with the empirical data regarding concurrent and predictive validity. Subjects in the study were 36 children, aged 4–12 years, each along with a parent, who had been referred to a day-family-treatment centre. Included in the study were eight day-family-treatment centres located in various parts of Denmark.

The results indicate a strong agreement between raters, and a significant correlation was found in the test-retest analysis with a good internal consistency. In a comparison of age groups and referred/non-referred groups, significant differences were revealed.

The study suggests that the EDS offers a consistent measure of the emotional competencies and vulnerabilities of 4–12-year-olds and is suited for determining their emotional developmental age, competencies and difficulties.
