In this study, the reliability and validity of Experiences in Close Relationships-Revised (ECR-R), a scale developed to measure adult attachment dimensions, were examined in a Turkish student sample. Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses revealed that ECR-R has a two-factor solution representing attachment-related avoidance and attachment-related anxiety. The relationships of avoidance and anxiety dimensions with the related variables support the validity of ECR-R. Moreover, it is found that the dimensions measured by ECR-R have high internal consistency and test-retest reliability. In light of these findings, it is suggested that researchers use ECR-R, which has higher measurement precision as compared to other scales, in the assessment of adult attachment.
