In addition, if the measure is to be used with clinical populations, examination of its internal consistency and test-retest reliability in clinical populations would be important.

As evidence of validity, the nonabused group scored highest on the secure factor, followed by the neglected group, and then the physically abused group. Scores on the Anxious/Ambivalent factor were not significantly correlated with aggression variables. Items are derived from the Attachment Questionnaire, a widely used measure of adult attachment. The theory of attachment was originally developed by John Bowlby (1907 - 1990), a British psychoanalyst who was attempting to understand the intense distress experienced by infants who had been separated from their parents. endstream endobj 50 0 obj<> endobj 51 0 obj<> endobj 52 0 obj<>/Font<>/ProcSet[/PDF/Text]/ExtGState<>>> endobj 53 0 obj<> endobj 54 0 obj<> endobj 55 0 obj<> endobj 56 0 obj<> endobj 57 0 obj[/Separation/Black/DeviceCMYK 71 0 R] endobj 58 0 obj<> endobj 59 0 obj<> endobj 60 0 obj<> endobj 61 0 obj<> endobj 62 0 obj<> endobj 63 0 obj<> endobj 64 0 obj<> endobj 65 0 obj<>stream Socioemotional and Academic Adjustment Among Children with Learning Disorders: The Mediational Role of Attachment-Based Factors.
