Abstract  To promote research on adult attachment in China, the “Experiences in Close Relationships Inventory (ECR)”, a scale widely used and considered as the "standard" one in USA, was adapted into Chinese. 371 college students in China were asked to respond to the scale along with Rosenberg’s self-esteem and Other-view scales for testing construct validities, and 59 of them to retake the scales 4 weeks later for testing temporal reliability. Of them, 231 who reported had/have had romantic experiences were selected to final analyses. As a result, this scale was demonstrated to have adequate reliabilities (internal and temporal consistency) and validities (construct and criterion-related)
