Abstract

The psychometric properties of AIDA in Chile and relations between identity and personality development in a Chilenian school sample.

In the revision of DSM, disorders of identity as an indicator of impaired self-related personality functioning are discussed to be integrated as a central diagnostic criterion for personality disorders. Goth, Foelsch, Schlueter-Mueller and Schmeck (2012) have developed the self-rating questionnaire AIDA (Assessment of Identity Development in Adolescents) for the use in adolescents aged 12–18 years to assess Identity, a highly complex construct that is difficult to define. The aim is to differentiate normal identity from identity crisis and pathology in adolescents.

This presentation is oriented to explain the validation process of the Spanish AIDA version in Chile, University of los Andes and Instituto Medico Schilkrut in Santiago Chile is part of an international group working to cross-culturally validate the AIDA The AIDA will also be compared with the Junior Temperament and Character Inventory (12–18 JTCI R; Goth, Cloninger and Schmeck, 2005), a measure of personality.

The Pilot test with a subsample of N = 204 adolescents provided sufficient scale reliabilities with a = 0.94 for the total scale Diffusion, 0.88 for the scale Discontinuity and 0.90 for the scale Incoherence, the subscales lied between 0.63 and 0.83.

The main study phase will be the validation sample for the instruments with a selected, stratified sample of n = 720, male and female students from 7 th and 8th level (equivalent to elementary school) and from 1st through 4th (equivalent to high school) and from three socio-economic levels (High, Medium and Low) in any district of Santiago. The second stage expands the stratified sample to 1,080 students.
