MARTINEZ GUZMAN, Claudio  and  NUNEZ MEDINA, Carlos. Adult Attachment Prototype Rating (AAPR): psychometric properties of chilean version. Interam. j. psychol. [online]. 2007, vol.41, n.3, pp. 261-274. ISSN 0034-9690.

In the extensive production of adult attachments measures, an alternative has arisen in the format of an interview: the “Adult Attachment Prototype Rating (AAPR)”. This article presents the results of a Spanish adaptation and the AAPR´s psychometric properties in the sociocultural Chilean context. Based on two stages sample design, the study of reliability was achieved through blind judges and validity was proved by two questionnaires as criterion. The results show a similar interrater reliability to studies that have used the original instrument. The study of validity showed satisfactory and consistent results. These results are discussed in the light of the constraints of using instruments that assess different constructs.
