Infant Attachment Impacts Couples Recovery After Fights

Wasatch Family Therapy CouplesSecure infant attachments impact adult couple’s ability to recovering from a fight according to researchers Jessica E. Salvatore, a Ph.D. student, with Sally I-Chun Kuo, Ryan D. Steele, Jeffry A. Simpson, and W. Andrew Collins, all from the University of Minnesota. They found that “people who were more securely attached to their caregivers as infants were better at recovering from conflict 20 years later.”

A recent PsychCentral article summarizing the study explains how this happens.

People who were more securely attached to their caregivers as infants were better at recovering from conflict 20 years later. This means that if your caregiver is better at regulating your negative emotions as an infant, you tend to do a better job of regulating your own negative emotions in the moments following a conflict as an adult.

There’s hope for insecurely attached infants if you choose a securely attached partner.

We found that people who were insecurely attached as infants but whose adult romantic partners recover well from conflict are likely to stay together,” remarked Salvatore. “If one person can lead this process of recovering from conflict, it may buffer the other person and the relationship.”
