Sanjeev Kumar and Umesh Kumar
Adolescence is a stage of ups and downs because it involves complex changes in biological, psychological and social functioning. Also parents and peers play a major role in adjustment during this stage. So the present study was conducted to find the relationship of parent and peer attachment with coping style of adolescents. It was hypothesized that parent and peer attachment has a positive correlation with the problem focused coping while negative correlation with the emotion focused coping. In order to verify the above hypotheses, 60 adolescents (22 girls + 38 boys) were selected from a school of Bhiwani. Inventory of parent and peer attachment (IPPA) by Gay Armsden and Mark T. Greenberg (1987), coping strategies scale by A.K. Srivastava (1986) were used to collect the data. The data were analysed by using Pearson’s correlation in SPSS 20 software. The results reveals that parent and peer attachment are significantly positively correlated with problem-focused coping while parental attachment is significantly negatively correlated with emotion-focused coping. Peer attachment does not show any significant correlation with emotion-focused coping style.
