The Impact of Insecure Attachment on Adolescent Self-Concept and Peer Attachment: A Resource for Counsellors
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this capstone is to provide an outline of the current research on the impact that an insecure attachment has on self-concept and peer attachment in adolescence. Insecure attachment within adolescents creates a negative self-concept, which makes it difficult for individuals to create healthy peer attachments. Adolescents are in a key stage of identity development, and therefore having a negative self-concept only further interrupts their ability to form healthy and positive self-concepts. Within the final chapter, the research is utilized to formulate an outline for a workshop that can be hosted to help train and educate counsellors on effectively working with adolescents who have an insecure attachment style.
