The Relationship between Attachment Styles with General Health and Affective Adjustment: The Mediating Role of Child's Evaluation of Inter-Parental Conflict and Triangulation
AimThe purpose of this study was to test the model of the relationship between attachment styles with affective adjustment and general health with mediating factor of child’s evaluation of inter-parental conflict and triangulation among female high school students in Ahvaz.
MethodDescriptive and path analysis were used as the method for data analysis. Total of 213 female high school students were randomly selected through cluster sampling method. Participants completed the revised Adult Attachment Scale (RASS)، Children Perception of Inter-parental Conflict Scale (CPIC)، General Health Questionnaire (GHQ-28)، and Adjustment Inventory for School Students (AISS).
ResultsThe analysis of structural equation modeling did not seem to show a desirable goodness of fit for the proposed model. However، carrying out covariation for child’s evaluation of inter-parental conflicts and triangulation، showed a good fitness for the data obtained from the final proposed model. The results of direct coefficients indicated a significant correlation between ambivalent and anxiety attachment styles with general health، affective adjustment، child evaluation of inter-parental conflict and triangulation، child evaluation of inter-parental conflict with general health، and triangulation with affective adjustment. Results from using Preacher and Hayes indirect coefficients test showed a significant relationship between ambivalent and anxiety attachment styles with general health that was mediated by child evaluation of the conflict between his or her parents، as well as their use of triangulation. Moreover، there seemed to be significant relationships between ambivalent and anxiety attachment styles، with affective adjustment، which was mediating by child’s evaluation of inter-parental conflict.
ConclusionsParents’ conflictual relationship and triangulation can have negative influence on general health and affective adjustment during children’s developmental process.
