Title

The Relationship Between Attachment Styles And Romantic Relationship Satisfaction

Description

This study aims to investigate the relationship between attachment style, physiological responsivity and relationship satisfaction in dating and non-dating college students. Other than a requirement of 18 years of age, there are no exclusionary criteria for participants. Self-report questionnaires will be used to measure participants' attachment style (The Security Scale and The Coping Strategies Questionnaire) with each parent and to measure relationship satisfaction (Couple's Satisfaction Index). Physiological responsivity (skin conductance and breathing patterns) will be measured during the viewing of 5 conflict video clips. These short vignettes have been borrowed from Hollywood films for their depiction of relational conflict. For instance Revolutionary Road shows a hostile relationship, The Break-Up depicts a volatile relationship, The Pursuit of Happiness conflict avoiding, and It's a Disaster shows a validating relationship. This study is examining the correlation between hypotheses.
