CALVETE, Esther  e  VEYTIA, Marcela. Adaptation of the Child-to-Parent Violence Questionnaire to Mexican Adolescents. rev.latinoam.psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.50, n.1, pp.49-60. ISSN 0120-0534.

Aggressions against parents -or child-to-parent violence - are a relevant social problem. The aims of the current study were to explore the prevalence of child-to-parent violence in Mexican adolescents and evaluate the psychometric properties of the Child-to-Parent Violence Questionnaire (Calvete & Orue, 2016) in this population. A total of 1417 adolescents (57% girls aged 14 to 19) participated in the study. Confirmatory factor analyses supported the existence of four first-order factors (psychological aggression towards the mother, physical aggression towards the mother, psychological aggression towards the father, and physical aggression towards the father). Moreover, hierarchical models indicated that these factors could be explained by broader dimensions of psychological vs. physical aggression, and aggression against mother vs. father. Prevalence rates were obtained for all types of child-to-parent violence, which were generally lower than those obtained in other countries. In addition, the reasons for the aggressions were analyzed, the most frequent ones being the affective and instrumental reasons.
