Abstract
The purpose of this dissertation was to study potential differences in forgiveness depending on attachment-styles. The sample (N = 359) consisted of upper secondary school students from Sweden. The instruments that were used after translation and standardization were: Brennan, Clark and Shaver's Experiences in Close Relationships (ECR) and Enright Forgiveness Inventory (EFI). The results showed that the ECR avoidance dimension was negatively correlated with the EFI subscales behavior and cognition. The ECR anxiety dimension was negatively correlated with the EFI subscale for cognition. Fearful attachment represented more negative cognitions than secure and dismissing. Secure attachment was significantly more forgiving than insecure,... (More)

Syftet med avhandlingen var att studera eventuella skillnader vad gäller förlåtelse beroende av attachmentmönster. Deltagare i studien (N = 359) var gymnasieelever från Malmö. De instrument som användes var Brennan, Clark and Shaver's Experiences in Close Relationships (ECR) och Enright Forgiveness Inventory (EFI). Resultatet visade att ECR:s avoidance dimension var negativt korrelerat med EFI:s subskalor för beteende och kognition. ECR:s anxiety dimension var negativt korrelerat med EFI:s subskala för kognition. Deltagare representerande Fearful attachment representerade mer negativa kognitioner än de representerande secure och dismissing. Deltagare med Secure attachment var signifikant mer... (More)

Deltagare med Secure attachment var signifikant mer förlåtande än deltagare med insecure attachment, beroende av subskalorna kognition och beteende. Skillnader kunde enbart påvisas bland kvinnorna i studien. (Less)
