Abstract

This article reports the development and implementation of a new instrument, the Family Involvement Questionnaire (FIQ), for determining perceptions about family involvement needs in the rehabilitation process of traumatically brain-injured (TBI) clients. Factor analysis results indicate a four-factor solution to be optimal both in terms of parsimony and psychological meaningfulness, providing empirical evidence for the factorial structure of the FIQ. Additional statistical analyses using the factor-based scores of the four FIQ subscales revealed that professionals and family members differ significantly in their perceptions regarding family involvement in TBI rehabilitation in three of the four subscales. Specific activities where family members and professionals differed significantly are explored and implications of the study are discussed.
