The Personal Authority in the Family System Questionnaire (PAFS-Q) is a self- report instrument designed to assess important relationships in a three-generational family system. It operationalizes aspects of current intergenerational theory into psychometric scales for use in research and clinical practice. There are three versions of the PAFS-Q. Version A is for adults with children, B for adults without children, and C for college students without children. The key concepts and behaviours, the so called relational patterns, underlying the PAFS-Q, include: individuation, fusion, triangulation, intimacy, isolation, personal authority and intergenerational intimidation. As the paper shows, the Polish adaptation process of this technique comprised translation and back translation, evaluation of means and standard deviations for each item and construct. The collected data were subject to a variety of statistical procedures in order to establish validity (content and construct) and reliability of each version. One approach to validate the test were factor analyses (EFA and CFA). Ali the results presented below are satisfactory and comparable with the American findings. The PAFS-Q seems to be a valid and reliable instrument to measure intergenerational patterns of relations. The PAFS-Q might be used in empirical studies involving Polish subjects.
