Adolescents, Attachment Styles, Life Satisfaction, Self-Efficacy


The purpose of this research was to examine the interplay between adolescent attachment styles, Self-Efficacy, and happiness. Securely connected people, as proposed by Attachment Theory, like their relationships and are easy to talk to. Strong attachments to both parents and peers help adolescents through the challenging Transitional period of adolescence by satisfying their psychological needs and boosting their levels of selfefficacy, both of which contribute to their overall sense of well-being and sense of accomplishment. The total sample size for this study was five hundred secondary school students. Teenagers and young adults were scouted from numerous schools. The Independent Sample T-test, in addition to a number of descriptive statistics and a mediation analysis, were utilized in this investigation. We found that Attachment Styles were a significant factor in determining the likelihood of favorable outcomes like Life Satisfaction. We strongly recommend awareness programs for parents to guide about secure attachments and transitional phase of Adolescence.
