Abstract

The study explored college students' stress and persistence as a function of social support and attachment style. Results showed that students with one type of insecure attachment (fearful) perceived the most stress, were the least satisfied with their available support, and had the highest drop-out rate. Females perceived more stress, and dropped out at a higher rate, than males. Satisfaction with support mediated the relationship between attachment and stress, but not between gender and stress.
