Open communication and internal working models: For instance, in contrast to the proposed mediational model, it could be argued that offspring’s attachment may influence parent-child conflict patterns, rather than being influenced by them. Conversely, when wives were high in anxiety, husbands reported more domination and less involvement in day-to-day interactions, and more coercion and destructive process in response to conflict. To assess links between parental attachment security and conflict behavior, parents’ attachment scores were correlated with their reports of parent-child conflict.

Issues of closeness and distance in dating relationships: Second, participants made their ratings of frequency, intensity and emotional control for each of two contexts: These findings indicate that for husbands, the negative association between anxiety and satisfaction was partially mediated by communication patterns adopted during conflict – for husbands, anxiety seems to have some deleterious effects over and above those attributable to conflict patterns.

For ratings of mothers’ conflict behavior, the overall effect of reporter mother, offspring was highly significant. For example, conflict between adult partners may challenge or threaten their attachment bond.

Similarly, Gallo and Smith’s study of marital conflict showed complex effects of spouses’ anxiety levels: Conversely, an avoidant person’s preference for distance not wanting to be ‘smothered’ or controlled frustrates an anxious partner’s desire for intense closeness, exacerbating their tendency to cling and control.

Avoidant attachment is associated with rules that restrict expression of distress and support seeking deactivating strategiesand anxious-ambivalent attachment reflects rules that encourage heightened awareness and expression of distress hyperactivating strategies.

Beyond these ‘main effects’, it is possible that interactive effects may occur – that is, the effect of one person’s avoidance or anxiety may depend on the partner’s attachment profile.


Parental variables and offspring’s daulto difficulties Given the pivotal role of conflict-centred communication in the negotiation of attachment relationships, parents’ conflict behaviors were expected to predict child outcomes, and to mediate the link between parental security and child outcomes.

Conflicts also have greater potential to become emotional in intimate relationships, because they are more involving and threatening. Together, these results suggest that in the early years of apeggo, insecure spouses struggle to resolve differences and disagreements. Continuities and transformations in social relationships from childhood to adulthood.

Amazon Renewed Refurbished products with a warranty. Mutuality was also the strongest predictor of wives’ satisfaction, with both attachment scales becoming nonsignificant predictors. This finding, which highlights the problematic combination of two anxious spouses, fits with the results for coercion and avoidance in response to partner distancing above. This article summarises findings from my own research program into adult attachment and conflict processes, and also notes relevant findings from other researchers.

The finding that attachment-related effects were restricted to the partner-distant scene supports the proposition that attachment behavior is activated particularly by conflict pertaining to proximity-seeking and distancing, which threatens the viability of the relationship. In couple relationships, the association between attachment security and conflict-centred communication is likely to be bi-directional.

For coercion and avoidance, couples in which both partners were high in anxiety functioned most poorly; that is, they engaged in nonverbal avoidance but were demanding, threatening and disparaging in their comments.

Together, these two studies provide substantial evidence than insecure individuals experience more frequent and intense anger than secure individuals, and are more likely to ‘bottle up’ their anger or respond in other maladaptive ways.

In another approach, Vangelisti suggested that the defining feature of hurt feelings is relational transgression; that is, the offender is seen as having broken a relationship rule, and the target appraises his or her own role in the interaction as that of victim.

Difference score correlations in relationship research: We zpego examined this issue with two married samples: Hurt can lead either to conflict or to conflict avoidance, and conflict can either increase or diminish hurt depending on how it is handled. These results provide substantial support for the link between parental security and constructive conflict behavior. Further, the specific themes raised were consistent with participants’ responses to the forced-choice three-group attachment measure, completed two weeks later.


In our study of newly-weds, the most consistent partner effects involved husbands’ avoidance and wives’ anxiety. Researchers agree that the common theme involves particular cognitive appraisals, but differ somewhat in appego analysis of those appraisals.

Closeness and distance in long-term dating couples. When the questionnaire scales were added, the overall prediction was marginally significant. Adolescents are in the process of seeking autonomy from the family and hence describe it more negatively than their parents, who have usually made a huge investment in family life over many years.

In this study, content analysis of the descriptions showed that core attachment issues, including closeness and distance, were raised spontaneously by most respondents.

In particular, the experience of anger is associated with tension, impulsiveness and a tendency to engage in destructive behaviour.

Attachment, caregiving, and sex pp. These results are largely consistent with those from Mikulincer’s questionnaire- and laboratory-based studies of anger. These effects are consistent with the generational stake hypothesis: For husbands only, own avoidance was related to diary reports of less involvement, recognition, disclosure and satisfaction in everyday interactions, and to questionnaire reports of less mutuality mutual negotiation.

For example, wives reported the most conflict qpego when both spouses were anxious about the relationship, suggesting that the avoidance behavior was driven by the insecurities of both partners. Similarly, Ainsworth and Weissargued that attachment bonds exist in both childhood and adulthood, and that feebey functions, emotions and elicitors are involved, regardless of stage of life.
