Subject:home and parenting assessment

I am looking for solid measures of the family home and parenting assessments to use in measuring progress and for decision making in considering reunification. What are the best ones? I am not a researcher but would like instruments that researchers agree are reliable and valid. I am basically interested in understanding if the home is a safe environment and whether adequate parenting skills are in place. GH
