Paper highlights

  • In this paper  the reliability and validity of the newly-developed Maternal (Non)Responsiveness Questionnaire (MRQ) was examined
  • Exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis and correlation analysis were used. Three-factor structure was confirmed.
  • The non-responsiveness scale demonstrated the best  convergent and predicative validity, and can be used as a supplement for observational measures of maternal responsiveness.
