Abstract This study investigates the impact of attachment style on emotional regulation and psychological well-being among adults. It aims to explore how individuals' attachment patterns influence their ability to regulate emotions and their overall psychological well-being. The study examines different attachment styles. The objectives of the study are to examine the relationship between attachment styles and emotional regulation, to assess the impact of attachment style on specific aspects of emotional regulation, and to investigate the association between attachment style and overall psychological well-being. Two hypotheses are proposed: one predicting a positive effect of attachment style on emotional regulation, and the other predicting a positive effect of attachment style on psychological well-being. A sample of 120 individuals, predominantly aged between 18-25 years, is selected through purposive sampling. Data collection involves administering the Revised Adult Attachment Scale (Collins, 1996), the Emotion Regulation Questionnaire (ERQ), and a Psychological Wellbeing scale, along with a demographic information form. Questionnaires are distributed via Google Forms and other channels, ensuring a diverse participant pool. The results indicate a significant positive effect of attachment style on emotional regulation. However, no significant positive effect of attachment style on psychological well-being is found. These findings suggest that attachment style may play a crucial role in influencing emotional regulation but may not directly impact overall psychological well-being.
