Description The present study was intended to develop a screening to assess sensitivity in caregivers. Maternal sensitivity was defined as the mother’s ability to perceive and interpret accurately her infant’s signals and respond appropriately. The screening was designed from the categories of the Child and Adult Relationship Experimental Index (CARE-Index), which has been widely used and validated to assess maternal sensitivity. The analysis was carried out between judges using the Content Validity Ratio Statistical Analysis (CVR). The screening assessment proved to be adequate to identify sensitivity in the primary caregiver. Afterwards, it was used with a typical sample of 53 Puerto Rican dyads with children between 0 and 30 months, to determine the reliability of the construct. The analysis was done with SPSS Version 25 to obtain Cronbach’s Alpha (⍺). The results reveal that the screening has reliability and there is consistency between the categories to be assessed. Limitations of the study are discussed.
El presente estudio tuvo el propósito de desarrollar una Hoja de Cernimiento para evaluar Sensibilidad en el Cuidador Primario. Se definió la sensibilidad materna como la habilidad para percibir e interpretar adecuadamente las señales y comunicación del hijo, y responder apropiadamente a ellas. El cernimiento se diseñó a partir de las categorías del “Child and Adult Relationship Experimental Index” (CARE-Index) que ha sido ampliamente utilizado y validado para evaluar sensibilidad materna. Se llevó a cabo un análisis entre jueces utilizando el análisis estadístico de relación de validez de contenido (CVR). La Hoja de Cernimiento resultó ser adecuada para identificar sensibilidad en el cuidador primario por lo que se utilizó en una muestra típica de 53 diadas puertorriqueñas con niños entre 0 y 30 meses para determinar la confiabilidad del constructo. Se utilizó SPSS Versión 25 para obtener el índice de confiabilidad interna. Los resultados demuestran que el instrumento tiene confiabilidad interna y hay consistencia entre las categorías a evaluar. Se discuten limitaciones del estudio.
