Noom, Marc J.; Dekovic, Maja; Meeus, Wim H. J.
Journal of Adolescence, v22 n6 p771-83 Dec 1999
Examines the assumption that a high level of autonomy within a context of attachment provides the best constellation for psychosocial adjustments with adolescents (N=400). Results show that attitudinal, emotional, and functional autonomy were connected with attachment to father, mother, and peers to predict indices of psychosocial adjustment: social competence, academic competence, self-esteem, problem behavior, and depressive mood.
