Research project: Moving people toward felt-security

Currently Active: 
Yes

Research demonstrates that attachment security is associated with better relationship quality and well-being. We examine the extent to which temporarily activated attachment security (via priming) can lead to these positive outcomes in a series of studies

In a series of projects we have investigated the effects of priming attachment security on self-views and relationship-views, feelings of vitality and energy, pain sensitivity, and mental health. In addition, we have tested ways to increase the impact of a security prime via repeated priming in the lab or via text messaging.
