Assessment of a French version of the Mannheim Dream questionnaire (MADRE) in a Belgian sample
The aim of the current study was to provide a French validation of the MADRE questionnaire (Schredl, Berres, Klingauf, Schelhaas & Göritz, 2014) and to further examine demographic factors that may affect dream-related experiences (Schredl, Berres, Klingauf, Schelhaas & Göritz, 2014). The participants were 357 Belgians aged from 18 to 81 years. Despite some differences caused by the sample features, the results obtained with the French version of the MADRE questionnaire indicated a lot of similarities with the German original version. However, all variables did not reach satisfying retest reliability. The findings regarding the French version of the MADRE questionnaire are encouraging but a replication with a shorter test/retest interval and a more representative sample is needed.
