In addition, problem-solving was related negatively to mothers’ avoidance and fathers’ anxiety.

These results provide substantial support for the link between parental security and constructive conflict behavior. Journal of Social and Personal Relationships, 21 Six hierarchical regression analyses were conducted, one for each combination of gender and length of marriage. Journal of Social and Personal Relationships, 8, Adult attachment and the suppression of unwanted thoughts. The remaining measures were completed at assessment sessions conducted after 12 months and 21 months of marriage.

Attachment, conflict and intergenerational transmission of relationship difficulties The next study to be discussed Feeney, was designed to examine parent-child conflict, and to assess the implications of parental attachment and conflict behavior for offspring’s relational adjustment attachment security and loneliness.

Almost half of these attributed the cyclical patterns to regular changes in work or study commitments, whereas the remaining 15 including both partners in 5 couples attributed them to interpersonal dynamics involving distancing and pursuing.

Although anger may be controlled in the interests of denying distress or placating the partner, it may have the unfortunate consequence of impeding the expression of grievances and legitimate requests for change.

The leisure scene enabled a comparison of relational zdulto closeness-distance with more concrete issue-based conflict.


The roles of the man and woman were reversed in the two interactions, which were counterbalanced. In the Young Couples Study mentioned earlier, we also examined possible interactive effects of partners’ attachment characteristics.

Interaction effects of partners’ attachment characteristics In couple relationships, as already noted, both partners’ attachment characteristics are likely to shape relationship processes and outcomes. When nonverbal accuracy scores for the three message types were entered in place of the questionnaire scales at step 2, own anxiety was again the only significant predictor of marital satisfaction, and the influence of attachment on satisfaction was unaffected by the decoding measures.

This was a cross-sectional study; in each family, mothers, fathers and adolescents completed attachment scales avoidance and anxiety. Immediately before one scene the ‘leisure scene’each member of the couple was separately primed to argue for a different leisure activity, to be undertaken in a time previously set aside for shared couple activity.

Further, there is evidence that destructive responses to conflict mediate the association between insecure attachment and relational dissatisfaction; that is, insecurity drives maladaptive responses to conflict, which contribute to insecure persons’ tendency to evaluate their relationships negatively.

Implications for offspring’s attachment, loneliness, and relationship satisfaction. On the other hand, if proximity-seeking is seen as dangerous or disallowed, the individual engages in deactivating strategies, which involve denying attachment needs and maintaining distance and control.

If proximity-seeking is seen as a viable option for dealing with feelings of insecurity, the individual engages in hyperactivating strategies, which seek to get the partner to pay more attention and give more support intense monitoring; efforts to get closer. Although emotions such as anger, sadness and anxiety are all rated as negative in hedonic tone i. The dependent variable was marital satisfaction, and the predictors were participants’ scores on the attachment scales step 1 and conflict scales step 2.


In considering these findings, it is important to note that attachment and conflict patterns are not necessarily stable over long periods of time, and to acknowledge the difficulty, with cross-sectional studies, of inferring patterns of causation. Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, 71, Interestingly, however, anxious wives with anxious husbands reported less coercion than those with low-anxious husbands.

Further, regarding the possible mediating role of conflict behavior, the results provided preliminary support for links between the independent variables parental attachment and proposed mediators conflict behaviors.

In our study of newly-weds, the most consistent partner effects involved husbands’ avoidance and wives’ anxiety. Finally, with regard to emotion, females high in avoidance showed more negative affect both worry and hostility. Open-ended reports of attitudes to closeness and distance.

The first of these was the study of dating couples’ responses to interactions involving conflicts of interests, discussed earlier.

Such variables act as a link in the causal chain; hence, understanding the mechanisms by which insecurity leads to unhappy relationships can suggest additional points of intervention for counselors and clinicians. Examples of relevant conflict variables include problems in negotiation, negative attributions for partner behaviors, and reluctance to forgive transgressions. The association between maternal avoidance and loneliness was mediated by low maternal problem-solving, wpego the association between paternal anxiety apefo loneliness was mediated by both paternal attacking and low paternal problem-solving.
