FARKAS, Chamarrita; SANTELICES, María Pía; ARACENA, Marcela  and  PINEDO, José. Attachment and Socio-Emotional Adjustment: A Study in First Pregnant Women. Psykhe [online]. 2008, vol.17, n.1, pp.65-80. ISSN 0718-2228.

This article focuses on the study of adult attachment and its relationship with socio-emotional adjustment during the first pregnacy. A correlational descriptive study using a cross-sectional design was conducted. The sample included 139 primípara females between 19 and 40 years of age, from medium, medium-low and low socioeconomic status. The attachment style was evaluated using the Attachment Questionnaire for Adults, CaMir, and the socio-emotional adjustment with the Mental Health Questionnaire, OQ-45.2. Descriptive analyses of the sample were conducted, and the bivariate correlations between attachment styles and adjustment was estimated. The results show a significant relation between attachment styles and adjustment indexes.

Keywords : adult attachment; socio-emotional adjustment; first pregnancy.
