Abstract:The present study adds to the extant literature by providing initial evidence regarding the appropriateness of applying the two-dimensional model of attachment to contexts outside of the U.S. Furthermore, findings from the study significantly extend the extant literature by providing support for the mediating role of a culturally relevant construct (filial piety) in understanding the link between attachment and distress among Taiwanese high school students. Further research is needed to replicate findings of the current study and to identify the underlying mechanisms of the mediating effects.
