Title: To what extent do life experiences lead to changes in adult attachment styles? New findings from an intensive longitudinal investigation
Presenter: Chris Fraley, PhD, Professor, Department of Psychology, University of Illinois
Abstract: It is widely assumed that a variety of interpersonal experiences and life events can lead to changes in adult attachment styles. But what is unknown is whether those changes are sustained across time or whether they fade away relatively quickly. In this talk, I present data from an intensive longitudinal study that was designed to address this question. Over 4,000 adults completed online assessments approximately once a month for periods of time ranging from three months to three years. At each assessment, we assessed adult attachment styles and the occurrence of 25 life events. I will summarize the major findings from this project, and discuss their implications for how researchers should conceptualize and study stability and change in adult attachment.
