The Different Emotion Regulation in Insecurity Attachment
Adult attachment style refers to individual differences in the way people process and regulate their emotion. Avoidantly attached people tend to deal with emotion by decreasing attention to emotion information and then inhibition behavior or expressive suppression, while they use re- appraisal strategy for the same stimuli, the left amygdala activity is increasing. These results suggest that avoidant attachment style may imply less efficient reappraisal strategy. Conversely, anxiously attached people tend to intensify attention to emotion (both negative and positive) information and increase right amygdala activity in unpleasant social stimuli, which suggestive of increase emotional arousal and vigilance to social negative information. Further research is needed to explore the different stage of regulation strategy in different attachment style, and the hemispheric asymmetry in the context of attachment.
