The present study aims to investigate the mediating role of attachment types in the
relationships between childhood traumatic experiences, marital self-efficacy and
relational resilience. The study group consists of 531 married individuals.
“Childhood Trauma Questionnaire”, “Marital Self-Efficacy Scale”, “Relational
Resilience Scale” and “Experiences in Close Relationships-Revised” were
employed to collect the data. Structural Equation Modeling was used to analyze the
data. As a result of the research, the avoidant and anxious attachment types were
found to have a partial intermediary effect between marital self-efficacy and
childhood traumatic experiences. The avoidant attachment type displays a partial
intermediary role between the childhood traumatic experiences and relational
resilience. The anxious attachment type does not have an intermediary effect
between relational resilience and childhood traumatic experiences.
