Effects of Parental Attachment Style and Parental Expectations on Family Conflict in Families with Adolescents
Unformatted Document Text:  Attachment and Family Influence on Adolescence 20 correlations that reveal this variable as highly correlated with expectation of conflict (r = .59, p < .01.) Parental security is not a significant predictor (p = .85). Similarly, results from the standard regression of expectation of conflict to current family conflict did not prove significant (p= .14) but this may again be due to the small sample size. Correlations were obtained to assess the degree of relationship between expectation and family conflict. Results showed a moderately small correlation (r = .21, N = 50, p = .07). This does not indicate a significant relationship between parental expectation of conflict and current level of family conflict. However, when individual aspects of expectation were considered, a moderate correlation (r = .30) between parental worry about the adolescent in the future and current family conflict was revealed. A bivariate regression performed to test whether parental worry is a significant predictor of family conflict was significant (R = .31, F (1,49) = 5.38, p = .03). These results show that worry (r = .31, t = 2.32 (48) , p = .03) is a significant predictor of family conflict. Lastly, RQ2 pertained to adolescent perceptions of parental attachment to levels of family conflict. The IPPA scale measures trust, alienation, and communication as the components of attachment. Results from a standard multiple regression indicate adolescent perceptions of parental attachment are associated with level of family conflict (R = .79, F (3,49) = 26.34, p < .01). The results of the analyses show that the trust ( β = .66, t (52) = 4.08, p < .01) and alienation ( β = -.29, t (52) = -2.44, p < .05) are significant predictors current family conflict. This is consistent with the zero-order correlations that indicate that these two variables are highly correlated (r (trust) = .75, and r (alienation) = -.67 at p < .01) with current family conflict. Communication had a weaker correlation (r (communication) = .55) and did not contribute significantly to the regression model ( β = -.14, t (51) = -.96, p = .34). These findings account for a substantial amount of the variability of family conflict; however, results here should be considered with

Correlations were obtained to assess the degree of relationship between expectation and family
conflict. Results showed a moderately small correlation (r = .21, N = 50, p = .07). This does not
indicate a significant relationship between parental expectation of conflict and current level of
family conflict. However, when individual aspects of expectation were considered, a moderate
correlation (r = .30) between parental worry about the adolescent in the future and current family
conflict was revealed. A bivariate regression performed to test whether parental worry is a
significant predictor of family conflict was significant (R = .31, F (1,49) = 5.38, p = .03). These
results show that worry (r = .31, t = 2.32

Lastly,
RQ2 pertained to adolescent perceptions of parental attachment to levels of family
conflict. The IPPA scale measures trust, alienation, and communication as the components of
attachment. Results from a standard multiple regression indicate adolescent perceptions of
parental attachment are associated with level of family conflict (R = .79, F (3,49) = 26.34, p <
.01). The results of the analyses show that the trust (

(

= -2.44, p < .05) are significant predictors current family conflict. This is
consistent with the zero-order correlations that indicate that these two variables are highly
correlated (r
