A strong family orientation has been a cornerstone of family practice since its emergence in the late s 1 - 4 and is alo important in pediatrics.

Integrating an effective family orientation into everyday practice has proved feasible and extant in family practice. Many of these approaches are time consuming and not practical for use in large sample studies requiring a brief instrument.

The ability to assess the family context, however, is critical to many primary care studies and particularly those that deal with behavior, mental health, and psychosocial problems. We focus on evidence about the validity of the instrument, as it has regularly been found to be internally consistent. North and colleagues 23 obtained ratings of the usefulness of family assessment tools from family physicians.

Smilkstein and coworkers 17 found that adults in counseling perceived their families as more dysfunctional than adults in other samples. There was, however, no assessment of the family; thus the finding does not directly support the validity of the Family APGAR as a measure of family dysfunction. Smilkstein and colleagues also found that adopted children were more likely to perceive their families as dysfunctional than were biological children. This would not validate the Family APGAR as a measure of family dysfunction, because it seems unlikely that families who adopt are more dysfunctional than other families.
