Over the past few decades, research on attach-ment has investigated its development in infancy (Ainsworth, 1973; Ainsworth, Ble-har, Walters, & Wall, 1978; Bowlby, 1969), transition to adult romantic relationships (Bartholomew & Horowitz, 1991; Hazan & Shaver, 1987; Simpson, 1990), and most recently, the relationship between attachment and issues o...

Quantitative personality models of self-concept structures that contain multidimensional and dynamic components developed from theories about personality and individual differences (Showers 1992) Overview The self-concept is contextualized. Research on personality and individual differences have attempted to quantitatively model how self-concepts a...
Article
Full-text available
Recent research has demonstrated that individuals' relationships with God are attachment-based. However, research has not yet investigated differences in attachment to God by parents' marital status. Thus, the goal of the present study was to examine these links. To do so, 288 undergraduate students completed measures assessing family structure, at...
Article
Full-text available
The evaluative organization of self-knowledge refers to the manner in which individuals organize self-relevant knowledge (Showers, 1992). This model includes a continuum that ranges from perfect compartmentalization (i.e., organizing positively and negatively valenced self-beliefs into separate self-aspects) to perfect integration (i.e., organizing...

Recent research on communication in close relationships has focused on how relational uncertainty—or the inability to predict and explain behavior in relationships—is associated with poor relationship outcomes.

Article

Full-text available
Although faculty have been increasingly encouraged to engage in a “writing-across-the-curriculum” program format, we believe that a systematic plan for writing assignments in university-level psychology departments should include a required writing course as well. Data from four sections of a newly implemented Writing for Psychology course suggest...

Full-text available
Previous research has found that divorce negatively predicts college students’ romantic relationships and intimacy (Ensign, Scherman, & Clark, 2006). However, previous studies on adult children of divorce have not included extended family support as an influence on attachment styles. To address this void, the current study examined differences in a...

Article
This article applies a dynamic model of self-structure to self-change during psychological treatment.
