Adult attachment as a predikton of copingstrategies : A survey study about adult attachment and copingstrategies (English)
Abstract [sv]

En kvantitativ enkätstudie har genomförts med syfte att undersöka korrelationer och prediktioner mellan vuxen anknytning och copingstrategier. Urvalet till studien är 133 studenter från olika universitet och högskolor i Sverige som besvarade en enkät. För att mäta vuxen anknytning användes Experience in close relationship (ECR-R) och för att mäta copingstrategier användes Brief COPE. Insamlad data analyserades i SPSS med Pearsons korrelationskoefficient test och multipel regressionsanalys. Resultatet från föreliggande studie visade på ett negativt signifikant samband mellan ångestladdad anknytning och problemfokuserad coping. Resultatet visade även på ett negativt signifikant samband mellan undvikande anknytning och problemfokuserad coping. Resultatet visade på ett signifikant samband mellan ångestladdad anknytning och dysfunktionell coping. Resultatet visade även på ett signifikant samband mellan undvikande anknytning och dysfunktionell coping. Föreliggande studies resultat visade att det inte fanns något samband mellan ångestladdad anknytning och emotionsfokuserad coping. Resultatet från föreliggande studie visade även att det inte fanns något samband mellan undvikande anknytning och emotionsfokuserad coping. Resultatet visade på att ångestladdad anknytning var en signifikant prediktor av problemfokuserad coping där 15 % av variansen för problemfokuserad förklarades. Ångestladdad anknytning var en signifikant prediktor för dysfunktionell coping där 22 % av variansen förklarades. Slutsatserna är att studenter med ångestladdad och undvikande anknytning använder i lägre grad problemfokuserad coping. Studenter med ångestladdad och undvikande anknytning använder i högre grad dysfunktionella copingstrategier. Slutsatsen är även att andra variabler än vuxen anknytning påverkar användande av olika copingstrategier.

Abstract [en]

A quantitative survey study has been carried out to investigate possible correlations and predictions between adult attachment and coping strategies. The sample for the study was 133 students from various Universities and colleges in Sweden who answered a questionnaire. . To measure adult attachment this study used Experience in close relationship (ECR-R), and copingstrategies was measured by Brief COPE. Data collected were analyzed in SPSS using the Pearson correlationcoefficient test and multiple regression analysis.

The results from the present study showed significant negative correlation between anxiety loaded attachment and problem focused coping. The results also showed a significant negative correlation between avoidance attachment and problem focused coping. The results from the present study showed a significant correlation between anxiety loaded attachment and dysfunctional coping. The results also showed a significant correlation between avoidance attachment and dysfunctional coping. The study results showed that there was no correlation between anxiety loaded attachment and emotion focused coping. The results also showed that there was no correlation between avoidance attachment and emotion focused coping. The result from the present study showed that anxiety loaded extension was a significant predictor of problem-focused coping where 15% of the variance of problem-focused was explained. Anxiety loaded attachment was a significant predictor of dysfunctional coping where 22% of the variance was explained.

The conclusions are that students with anxiety loaded and avoidance attachment use lower grade of problem-focused coping. Students with anxiety and avoidance attachment uses increasingly dysfunctional coping strategies. It is concluded that variables other than adult attachment affects using various coping strategies.
