Adult Assessment

Assignment: Adult Attachment

Take a moment to reflect on your friendships. Think about who you consider to be your oldest friend and who might be your closest. Are they the same person? Why or why not?

While some individuals maintain the same friendships throughout their lifespans, others adapt their circles of friends as their interests, careers, and values change. As you reflect on your past and current friendships, how might your friendships and attachments to others compare?

In this Assignment, you will take Fraley’s Adult Attachment Survey (located in this week’s Learning Resources) to determine your personal attachment pattern. You will then consider how issues related to attachment have impacted your peer and romantic relationships, career choices, and current identity.

Complete a 3- to 4-page paper in which you do the following:

· Briefly summarize your personal patterns of attachment

· Identify your overall score and the corresponding attachment category

· Explain whether you think your results are accurate and why

· Explain how your attachment (either perceived or as identified in the Adult Attachment Survey) has shaped your development as an adult

· Justify your response with specific references to this week’s Learning Resources and the current literature
