AbstractExcerpt: “This chapter describes a system for evaluating several dimensions of coparenting and family process, introducing concepts based on the framework of structural family theory (S. Minuchin, 1974). The Coparenting and Family Rating System (CFRS) and its scales were developed as an alternative to several family-rating approaches that existed at the time of its development…The intent of the CFRS has been to capture variability in observable behavior exhibited during everyday family interactions…” (p.151)
