he instrument was validated on a sample of 1336 students (age range 11-18), from different part of Italy. The psychometric properties, factor structure, normative data and scoring are discussed in our paper “Misurare la mindfulness in età evolutiva: proprietà psicometriche e struttura fattoriale della versione italiana della Child and Adolescent Mindfulness Measure (I-CAMM)” by Arianna Ristallo, Marta Schweiger, Annalisa Oppo, Francesca Pergolizzi, Giovambattista Presti e Paolo Moderato (Psicoterapia Cognitivo Comportamentale, in press). Below you can find the abstract: The aim of this study is to analyze psychometric properties and factorial structure of the Italian version of the CAMM. Twelve schools were involved in the study and 1336 participants, aged between 11 and 18, were enrolled in two studies. The I-CAMM shows a two factors solution with a higher-order factor named “Mindfulness Skills”. The two factors detected are named “Awareness” and “Willingness”, respectively. The two factors solution is identified both with Exploratory Factor Analysis- performed on 657 participants recruited during the study 1 - and through the Confirmatory Factor Analysis - performed on 679 participants recruited during the study 2 – showing good indices of goodness of fit. The psychometric properties of the I-CAMM indicate good internal consistency (Cronbach’s alpha = 0.79 for the factor “ Mindfulness Skills”) and a good convergent validity with the scale of the internalizing problems of the YSR (r = -0,515) and with experiential avoidance and fusion measured with AFQ (r = -0,703). The mean scores of the I- CAMM are distributed differently between males and females; males reported significantly higher scores of “ Mindfulness Skills” than females. I-CAMM is a valid and reliable measure that can be easily used both in research and in clinical practice.
