PSYCHOMETRIC PROPERTIES OF THE SLOVAK VERSION OF EXPERIENCES IN CLOSE RELATIONSHIPS-REVISITED (ECR-R) ON GENERAL ADULT SAMPLE
Languages of publication
Experiences in Close Relationship-Revisited (ECR-R) are the most frequently used measure of self-reported adult attachment. Numerous studies have shown its general utility and similarity across language translations and cultures; some studies showed important differences in attachment style structure and also the need to reword/adapt some items. We explored the psychometric properties of the Slovak translation of ECR-R on a general adult sample (Study 1, n = 921). In Study 2 (n = 100) participants also filled out the Slovak version of NEO-FFI for further information on its relation to the major personality structure theory for concurrent and sEMBU for convergent validity. The results showed good psychometric properties of the Slovak translation of ECR-R. Factor analysis sorted items to scales exactly as authors of ECR-R presupposed. We found mild to moderate correlation between Anxiety and Neuroticism and Avoidance and Neuroticism; and mild correlation to some sEMBU scales. We also discuss what would help to improve knowledge and utility of the Slovak version of ECR-R.
