El propósito del estudio analizar la estructura interna de la versión española del Inventario de Apego con Padres y Pares (IPPA) de Armsden y Greenberg (1987) en una muestra de 231 adolescentes de 12 a 18 años. Se analizó la consistencia interna y la dimensionalidad de las puntuaciones de la escala. Se obtuvieron coeficientes de consistencia interna satisfactorios para cada una de las escalas (α ≥ .68) de las tres formas del cuestionario, excepto para la escala Alienación de la versión contestada sobre la madre. El Análisis Factorial Confirmatorio mostró que el modelo de tres factores es el mejor de los modelos propuestos (RMSEA ≤ .062) aunque las tres escalas se encuentran muy correlacionadas entre sí.
