Abstract

Adult attachment representations were explored in relation to personal distress, perspective-taking and empathic concern. Analyses revealed a significant relationship between fearful attachment representations and empathic concern, and this relationship was mediated by distress and perspective-taking, in serial. Secure attachment representations predicted more perspective-taking and, in turn higher empathic concern.
