ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationships among paternal attachment, maladaptive anger expression, emotional clarity, and self-efficacy. Participants were 379 middle school students from the Seoul, Gyeonggi, Gyeongnam, and Gangwon provinces. Structural Equation Modeling was conducted to analyze self-report data. The results indicate that both self-efficacy and the combination of self-efficacy and emotional clarity significantly mediate the relationship between paternal attachment and maladaptive anger expression. Based on these findings, we discuss effective intervention strategies for adolescents who have trouble with maladaptive anger expression caused by a low level of attachment to their father. The strategic implications for interventions with fathers are also addressed.
