[automatically translated] The CZECH (Childhood Experience of Care and Abuse: Bifulco et al. 1994) is a retrospective semi-structured interview for use with young people and adults, which explores the experiences with parents and other significant figures in childhood and adolescence . The CZECH interview allows to obtain reliable measurements and useful in clinical and research terms, on development contexts, affective care and received materials and any experiences of mistreatment and abuse. The interview user CZECH meets the need to assess the objective aspects rather than subjective perceptions of the experience early, when they have a large size of events on which an evaluation (Bifulco is possible, Moran, 1998). A similar tool is in line with the literature that emphasizes the importance of relational contexts and childhood experiences and their role in the structuring of the self, both in relation to a healthy development as preconditions for any psychopathology (Bifulco, Moran, 1998; Caretti, Craparo, 2008; Fonagy et al. 2002; Giannone, Lo Verso 1994, 1996, Giannone et al., in press, Schimmenti, Bifulco, 2010). In this paper summarizes the psychometric properties of the Italian version of the interview CZECH: it shows adequate characteristics of reliability and factorial and convergent validity of population Referred (Giannone, Schimmenti, et al, submitted), and preliminary data from clinical samples adults showed adequate concurrent validity and discriminant features.
