Abstract
PURPOSE
This study was done to examine the relationship between self-reported attachment style, trait anger and anger expression in adolescent women.
METHODS
Five hundred and eighty adolescent women were recruited from March to May, 2006. The instruments were Spielberger's state-trait anger expression inventory-Korean version (Chon, Han, Lee, & Spilelberger, 1997), and Batholomew & Holowitz's attachment style Questionnaire (1991). Data was analyzed by descriptive statistics, and ANOVA using the pc-SPSS (version 10.0) program. RESULT: The mean score of trait anger and anger-in were higher in adolescent women with an insecure attachment style compared to women with a secure attachment style.
CONCLUSION
This finding suggests that family environment factors such as attachment styles are related to trait anger and anger expression in adolescent women. There is a need to further clarify the relationship of attachment style, trait anger and anger expression in adolescent men.
