A Comparison of Earned-Secure and Secure Attachment Styles and
Their Effects on Relationship Quality

Why this Topic?
For Further Exploration...
Prove that individuals do not have to become what they have lived through or be defined by their past.
Earned- Secure individuals can be effective and compassionate caregivers as well as experience just as positive and healthy romantic relationships as Continuous-Secures
Romantic Relationships
"Earned-secure wives regulated their affect as well as continuous-secure wives in their marital problem-solving interactions."

"Earned-secure and continuous-secure wives expressed more positive affect than preoccupied wives and less withdrawal than dismissing wives."

"Earned-secure wives regulated their affect as well as continuous-secure wives and more competently than dismissing and preoccupied wives."

"Difficult childhood experiences alone may not confer a greater vulnerability for future relationship problems."
Caregiver Role
"Under low stress the positive caring of the earned-secures did not differ significantly from the continuous-secures."

"Under high stress the positive caring of the earned-secures did not differ significantly from the continuous-secures, however, the positive parenting was significantly higher than insecures."

"A problematic upbringing does not lead to inter generational continuity of poor parenting under high stress conditions. "
"Attachment Style of foster carers as measured by the Attachment Style Questionnaire was not found to be related to the quality of care provided to children. "

"Individuals who have worked through difficult childhoods were found not to be more steeled against stress than those who had happy childhoods."

"Only under high stress do earned-secures show more positive parenting than insecures. "
