Abstract: This paper presents an empirical study investigating the relations between attachment styles in relationships and overall resilience in response to a general psychologically traumatic event. Past research has examined the associations between attachment and specific coping methods, and attachment and general resilience from extreme trauma, so this study seeks to expand these results in order to apply the findings to the general population. A short survey was distributed in an online format and 215 participants that represented four attachment categories were chosen and analyzed based on the four categories as well as the two collapsed categories of secure and insecure attachment. Results showed that securely attached individuals had the highest level of resilience in response to psychological trauma, with insecure, dismissive participants in a close second. Insecure, preoccupied individuals and insecure, fearful individuals had significantly lower scores of resilience, F(3, 215) = 8.883, p < 0.0001. Examination of attachment based on a secure/insecure dichotomy again showed significantly higher resilience scores for the securely attached individuals, t(213) = 4.231, p < 0.0001. The current findings suggest that attachment style in relationships functions as a risk and protective factor for individuals facing minor to severe trauma, and thus, may play a role in the development of psychological disorders.
