Abstract:

Limited research has been conducted on the criminal population in regards to their forms and patterns of adult attachments. This study examined the relationship between predictor variables of drug dependence, parental quality, and previous offense history in correlate with participants' adult attachment styles based on the Attachement Styles Questionnaire. This study examined 37 participants from an urban jail in southeastern Virginia. Spearman's rank correlation, sample proportion test of equal percents, and Fisher's exact test were the statistics used to analyze the data. The hypotheses of previous offense history predicting attachment cycle were not supported. However, the study determined that a participant's admission to chemical dependence predicted a significant relationship between certain facets of insecure and secure adult attachment. In addition, this study determined that the quality of an offender's maternal relationship predicted a significant relationship with facets of adult attachment. Discussion of the relationship between adult attachment styles and predictor variables is reviewed and clinical implications are discussed.
