Love and loss : The role of attachment on perceived satisfaction in a romantic relationship and level of distress during a separation (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna studie syftade till att studera sambandet mellan tre anknytningsmönster och kvalitén på romantiska förhållanden samt upplevelsen av lidande vid en separation. Studien önskade även undersöka sambandet mellan psykiskt välmående och anknytningsmönster. 155 individer svarade på fyra enkäter. Måtten som användes var Attachment Style index, Couples Satisfaction Index, Distress Index och Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HAD). Korrelationer visade att personer med ambivalent anknytningsmönster upplevde sina relationer signifikant sämre och upplevde signifikant mer lidande i både intensitet och tid efter relationens slut. De båda otrygga grupperna skattade högre på HAD än den trygga gruppen. Framtida rekommendationer ges till personalen på skola eller fritids. Om de är uppmärksamma på barns anknytningsspecifika beteenden så kan insatser sättas in tidigt, så som t.ex. familjerådgivning eller enskild terapi.

Abstract [en]

This paper aimed to study the association between different patterns of attachment and the quality of romantic relationships, as well as the experienced level of distress at a separation. The study also wanted to investigate the relationship between well-being and patterns of attachment. 155 individuals responded to four questionnaires. The questionnaires used were the Attachment Style Index(ASI), Couples Satisfaction Index (CSI), Distress Index (DI) and Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HAD). Correlations showed that people with ambivalent attachment pattern experienced their relationships significantly worse and experienced significantly more distress, both in intensity and recovery time, after the end of the relationship. The two insecurely attached groups gained a higher score on HAD than the securely attached group. Future recommendations are given to the staff at school and other professions having regular contacts with families. If they are aware of children's attachment specific behaviors efforts can be introduced early, such as, for example, family counseling or individual therapy.
