The lack of validation studies is a disturbing apgwr, once the clinical decision making process must be based on the use of criteria and instruments that are clearly adequate to be consumed by specific groups, because there are sociocultural particularities present among different population segments and geographic scenarios, thus not enabling great generalizations of the results of adequacy of certain procedures.

Spearman’s linear correlation index was used to study the convergent validity and divergence between the scales and dimensions considered. Family APGAR proposes an evaluation of family functionality that is independent of the stage of life of the members of this same family.

Anxiety and depression are disorders that affect the individual in a negative way, and positive correlations are expected between the scores of both tests.
