Abstract

The purpose of this study is to analyze the internal structure of the Inventory of Parent and Peer Attachment of Armsden and Greenberg (1987), in a sample of 231 Spanish adolescents, (aged 12 -18). The internal consistency and dimensionality of the scale scores were analyzed. We obtained satisfactory internal consistency coefficients (ω ≥ 0.68) for each of the scales in the three forms of the questionnaire, except for the scale Alienation for the mother version. The Confirmatory Factor Analysis showed that the threefactor model is the best model proposed (RMSEA ≤ 0.062) although the three scales are highly correlated with each other.
