Attachment Style and Person-Centered Comforting.
Weger, Harry, Jr.; Polcar, Leah E.
Western Journal of Communication, v66 n1 p84-103 Win 2002
Examines a link between attachment style and person-centered comforting. Notes that research suggests that those with secure attachment beliefs tend to be better comforters than those who are more avoidantly or anxiously attached. Suggests that one possible explanation lies in secures' ability to construct person-centered comforting messages. Notes results of questionnaires completed by undergraduate students at two universities support the suggestion. (SG)
