The article presents the results of research aimed studying connections between level of conflict and type of the students’ attachment to mother. The study involved 60 students of MSUPE in the age from 19 to 21. There were used two methods for studying the level of conflict: the method for assessing the level of conflict (V.I. Rogov) and self-assessment of conflict (S.M. Emelianov). The type of attachment was investigated using a questionnaire on attachment to parents (M.V. Yaremchuk). Based on the results obtained it’s possible to conclude about connections between the type of attachment and the level of conflict. Significant differences were obtained between the level of students’ conflict with an anxious-ambivalent type and the reliable type of attachment. Students with a reliable type of attachment have a lower level of conflictability compared to students who have other types of attachment. The highest level of conflict was obtained in students with an anxious-ambivalent attachment type.

Keywords: conflictness, attachment, reliable type of attachment, anxious-ambivalent attachment type

Column: Empirical Research
