Despite the importance of measurement of parental rearing patterns in psychiatric research, there are almost no acceptable standardised inventories available. An English‐language version of the Swedish EMBU Inventory is presented, which has subscales measuring the degree to which each parent was abusive, depriving, punitive, shaming, rejecting, overprotective, overinvolved, tolerant, affectionate, performance‐oriented, guilt‐engendering, stimulating, favoured siblings, and favoured the subject. Results indicate high and comparable reliability and item‐scale correlations in the English version, and a similar factor structure. It would appear that the EMBU has both cross‐cultural reliability and stable structure in the English translation.
