Depression: Attachment Styles, View of Self and Negative Affect


We investigated the relationship between attachment styles and negative affect using Bartholomew and Horowitz's (1991) model of attachment. Attachment styles with a negative self view (i.e, preoccupied and fearful) were expected to be associated with more distress, especially the fearful style which involves negative views of both self and others. Measures of attachment, depression, depression proneness, and social anxiety were administered to 293 undergraduates.
