Abstract

Objective: Among the instruments aiming to assess perceived parenting attitudes during the childhood period, EMBU (Egna Minnen Barndoms Uppfostran; My memories of upbringing) is one of the frequently used scales. It is a self-report instrument in which adult participants are asked to report their perceptions of the attitudes of their parents during their childhood on the dimensions of emotional warmth, overprotection and rejection, separately for each parent. The aim of the present study was to examine the reliability and the validity of the Turkish version of the EMBU, following a previous pilot study which supported its psychometric properties and supported its cross-cultural validity.
