Kerns, Kathryn A.; Tomich, Patricia L.; Aspelmeier, Jeffery E.; Contreras, Josefina M.
Developmental Psychology, v36 n5 p614-26 Sep 2000
Examined validity of attachment-based measures of parent-child relationships designed for 9- to 12-year-olds. Measures included self-reports of perceptions of security and avoidant and preoccupied coping, a projective interview assessing attachment state of mind, parents' reports of willingness to serve as an attachment figure, and ratings of parental responsiveness. Found modest associations across different measures and moderate to high stability. (Author/KB)
