Short project description
The aim of the study is a validation- and reliability-study of the CAI (Child Attachment Interview) in a high-risk-population and furthermore to examine and validate its comparability to the MCAST (Manchester Child Attachment Story Task; for children aged 4-7 years). Lastly, the CAI will be examined with respect to its cultural, linguistic and conceptual factors. A total number of 100 children aged 8 to 10 years who have been tested with the MCAST at age 4 will be re-tested with the CAI and validity testing will be applied.
