Description

Background:
A pool of 50 items was created by selecting the items of an adult autonomy questionnaire (Bekker, 1991). This questionnaire was selected because all 3 theoretical dimensions (functional, emotional and attitudinal autonomy) are represented in this item pool. However, the questionnaire is originally used for adults and many of the items are not relevant for adolescents. Subsequently, the wording of the items was adapted to make them suitable
for adolescents (Noom, 1999).
