SANTELICES-ALVAREZ, MARÍA PÍA et al. Study of Adult Attachment Styles of a Group of Patients with End-Stage Renal Disease. Univ. Psychol. [online]. 2009, vol.8, n.2, pp.413-422. ISSN 1657-9267.

Several studies indicate that attachment in adults is feasible with modifications throughout life, especially in situations of change, as is the experience of chronic disease. This study aims to describe the attachment patterns of a group of patients with end-stage renal disease. We studied a group of 22 patients with this disease requiring dialysis, compared with a group of 22 adults for non-clinical sample (without disease), matching the participants according to sex and age. The results showed differences significant patterns of attachment in both groups. Clinically healthy individuals tend to have predominantly a secure attachment pattern, while those patients on dialysis tend to have a preoccupied attachment pattern.
