Fragebogen zu Konfliktlösungsstilen im Elternhaus
The KLSE represents a quantitative and qualitative measure of the diagnosis, strength and manifestation of certain family conflict resolution styles. The total of 11 items were formulated on the basis of literature studies or come from the scale "openness" of the Family Diagnostic Test System (FDTS; Schneewind et al., 1985). They are distributed over the following scales: (1) conflict escalation, (2) conflict resolution with offended withdrawal, and (3) conflict avoidance. Reliability: For the scales, consistency coefficients of Cronbach's alpha = .77-.82 were calculated, for total conflict resolution a value of alpha = .80. Validity: No explicit validity check was performed. The results of the study by Böhm (1993) provide empirical evidence of validity: The more conflict resolution with insulted withdrawal a woman has experienced, the more likely she is to have an eating disorder later. The fact that the women concerned experienced a variety of conflict resolution styles (as opposed to one-sided ones) in the parental home can have a positive effect on their eating behaviour. When all conflict resolution styles are considered together, the more negative the conflict resolution in the family of origin was, the worse the eating behaviour of women.
