This study examined the basic psychometric properties of the Turkish version of the "Mother-Adult Daughter Questionnaire (MAD)" by Rastogi (1995). The MAD and Inventory of Parent and Peer Attachment (IPPA) were administered to 185 female university students. The total score of three subscales (connectedness, trust in hierarchy, and interdependency) constitute the strength of mother and adult daughter relationship. Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA), Internal Consistency Coefficient (Cronbach Alpha), test-retest reliability and Convergent validity were examined to assess the cross-cultural equivalence of this particular instrument. Based on the results, MAD questionnaire appears to be a valid and reliable scale for Turkish samples. (C) 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
