The six constructs of the NSCS are: A. My current lifestyle and living conditions; B. My childhood and relationships with my parents; C. My relationship with the father/mother of my children or current partner; There are two di There are two different versions of the NSCS that are designed for two different populations of parents you might be working with: Long Version (LV) The LV version is particularly useful in assessing individuals and family members with a high risk for child maltreatment; who are currently receiving child welfare services for abuse or neglect; who are ordered to attend parenting classes; who have a history of violence towards children and spouses/partners; or who have come to the attention of social services in need of parenting education. The The LV has approximately 80 items that address all six constructs presented above. Different NSCS’s are developed for each nurturing program and may have a different number of items. The information generated from the NSCS-LV is presented on a parenting profile. Responses per construct range from Below Average to Average to Above Average. Short Short Version (SV) is ideally suited for average families who are not receiving services for child abuse and neglect, who have not been referred for parenting education, and who have no reportable history of domestic violence. The SV with approximately 50 items is designed primarily for use with low-risk, or average families not receiving or re- ferred for parenting education. The SV provides a parenting profile with scores in three of the six NSCS constructs: Construct A: My current lifestyle and living conditions; Construct E: My Knowledge of Nurturing Parenting Practices; and Construct F: My utilization of Nurturing Skills. D. My relationship with my children and family; E. My knowledge of nurturing parenting practices; F. My Utilization of nurturing parenting strategies and skills.
