Research has highlighted that insecure attachment is related to interpersonal problems, however the underlying cognitive process is yet to be identified. This study examines whether the relationship between insecure attachment and interpersonal problems is mediated by other factors including rumination, thought suppression, autobiographical memory and social problem solving, which is supported by previous literature. Australian participants will be assessed through an online survey comprising of self-report questionnaires. The data will be statistically analysed using structural equation modelling. The research aims to develop a model that illustrates the relationship between insecure attachment and interpersonal problems through the mediator’s rumination, thought suppression, autobiographical memory and social problem solving.
