El CaMir es un cuestionario que mide las representaciones de apego. Se fundamenta en las evaluaciones que realiza el sujeto sobre las experiencias de apego pasadas y presentes y sobre el funcionamiento familiar. Es un instrumento ampliamente utilizado tanto en el ámbito de la investigación como en el ámbito clínico. El objetivo del presente estudio consistió en desarrollar una versión reducida del CaMir en lengua castellana (CaMir-R) y en obtener evidencias acerca de su validez y de su fiabilidad en una muestra de 676 adolescentes (364 mujeres y 312 varones) pertenecientes a distintos colectivos (muestra clínica, muestra de maltratados y muestra comunitaria) con un rango de edad que oscilaba entre 13 y 19 años (M= 15,62; SD= 1,49). Se examinó su estructura interna, su validez convergente y de decisión, la relación entre sus dimensiones y los síntomas psicopatológicos, así como su consistencia interna y su estabilidad temporal. Se obtuvieron 7 dimensiones, cuyos índices de consistencia interna oscilaron entre 0,60 y 0,85. Exceptuando la dimensión de «Permisividad parental», que no mostró una buena fiabilidad, los resultados sugieren que el CaMir-R permite evaluar las representaciones de apego y la concepción acerca del funcionamiento familiar de forma válida y fiable.

Short version of CaMir questionnaire (CaMir-R) to assess attachment. The CaMir is a questionnaire aimed at measuring attachment cognitions. It is based on subjects’ evaluations of past and present attachment experiences and family functioning. It is a widely used tool both in research and in clinical settings. The aim of this study was to develop a short version of CaMir in Spanish (CaMir-R) and to obtain evidence about its validity and reliability in a sample of 676 adolescents (364 female and 312 male) belonging to different groups (clinical, maltreated, and community samples) with an age range between 13 and 19 years (M= 15.62, SD= 1.49). We examined its internal structure, convergent, and decision validity, the relationship between its dimensions and psychopathological symptoms, as well as its internal consistency and temporal stability. The CaMir-R included 7 factors whose internal consistency indexes ranged between 0.60 and 0.85. With the exception of the «Parental Permissiveness» dimension, which did not show good reliability, the results suggest that the CaMir-R provides a valid and reliable assessment of attachment representations and of the conception of family functioning.
