The evaluation of the parenting is a multidisciplinary activity, with contributions from clinical psychology, child development, neuropsychiatry, family psychology, social psychology, and forensic psychiatry. There are operational applications that can result in different levels of psychosocial intervention. The authors have developed a tool called APS-I (Assessment of Parental Skills-Interview), aimed at evaluating specific behaviors (current and “visible”) that define the basic functions related to the exercise of actual parenting. This tool serves to steer the evaluator toward the most significant areas in the interview with the parent. The answers to the questions are analyzed according to two distinct criteria: firstly, evaluating the behaviors that the parent has described; secondly, using quality parameters to explore the degree of understanding that the subject has about the importance of that area.
