Abstract: The aim of the present study was to compare the discriminative validity (or the sensitivity and specificity) of three of the most prominent theoretically based clinical rating scales for family functioning. These scales are the Beavers Clinical Rating Scale which is derived from the Beavers Family Systems Model; the McMaster Clinical Rating Scale which is grounded in the McMaster Model of Family Functioning; and the Circumplex Clinical Rating Scale which developed from the Circumplex Model of Family Functioning.
