Abstract [sv]

En kvantitativ studie (med en enkät som underlag för datainsamlingen) genomfördes för att undersöka eventuell samvariation mellan vuxen anknytning och attityder till brottslighet. Vidare undersöktes om ångestladdad och undvikande anknytning är prediktorer för attityder till brottslighet. I studien deltog 151 respondenter och populationen som undersöktes var personer över 18 år. En elektronisk enkät skapades i Survey and Report och publicerades sedan i olika slutna grupper på Facebook. Mätinstrumentet Experience in close relationship revised (ECR-R) användes för att mäta vuxen anknytning och instrumentet The Measures of Criminal Attitudes and Associates (MCAA) användes för att mäta explicita attityder till våldsamhet, kriminell avsikt, kriminellt berättigande och kriminella vänner. Studiens resultat visade ett positivt signifikant samband mellan attityder till kriminell avsikt, ångestladdad och undvikande anknytning. Resultatet visade även ett positivt signifikant samband mellan attityder till kriminella vänner, ångestladdad och undvikande anknytning. Resultatet visade inget samband mellan attityder till våldsamhet, attityder till kriminellt berättigande, ångestladdad anknytning och undvikande anknytning. Vidare genomfördes två multipla regressionsanalyser där beroende variabler var attityder till kriminell avsikt och kriminella vänner. Prediktor variabler var ångestladdad och undvikande anknytning. Resultatet visade att ångestladdad anknytning var en signifikant prediktor för attityder till kriminell avsikt och undvikande anknytning var en signifikant prediktor för attityder till kriminella vänner. För studien drogs slutsatsen att individers attityder till kriminell avsikt och kriminella vänner förklaras till en viss grad av ångestladdad och undvikande anknytning. 

Abstract [en]

A quantitative study (based on a survey for the collection of data) was completed to investigate any connection between adult attachment and attitudes towards criminality. Further along an investigation of whether an anxiety loaded and avoiding attachment could be the predictors of attitudes to criminality. The study is based on the answers of 151 participators over the age of 18. An electronic survey was created in Survey and Report and was later published in different closed groups on Facebook. The tool Experience in close relationship revised (ECR-R) was used to measure adult attachment and an instrument called The Measures of Criminal Attitudes and Associates (MCAA) was used to measure explicit attitudes to violence, criminal intention, criminal justification and criminal friends. The result of the study showed a positively significant connection between criminal conjunction, anxiety loaded and avoiding attachment. The result also showed a positively significant connection between attitudes to criminal friends and anxiety loaded and avoiding attachment. The result showed no connection between attitudes to violence, criminal justification, anxiety loaded and avoiding attachment. Further on two multiple analyzes of regression was made where the dependent variables was attitudes to criminal conjunction and criminal friends. Predictor variables where anxiety loaded and avoiding attachment. The result showed that anxiety loaded attachment was a significant predictor for attitudes to criminal intention and avoiding attachment was a significant predictor for attitudes to criminal friends. There fore the conclusion was drawn to be that the attitudes of individuals towards criminal intent and criminal friends is to some extent explained by anxiety loaded and avoiding attachment.
