ABSTRACT

The paper, studied the impact of attachment style of an Indian Army officer on the resilience and perceived stress experienced in military life. Attachment styles of an individual affects many facets of an individual’s life, from personal to professional. Resilience and Perceived stress are important factors part of military life, as they impact an officer’s ability to adapt to challenges and demands of the profession. The study collected data from Indian Army officers on these three variables and it was found that most of the officers were having a secured attachment style, but almost close to the number of secure attachments were individuals who high showed dependent traits as well. Both secure and dependent attachment styles were seen to be high on resilience and low on perceived stress. Attachment styles have some impact on these factors but not to a great extend which indicates apart from attachment styles there are other factors that impact resilience and perceived stress as well. This indicates that for an adequate military lifestyle secure attachment style is important, but further explorations are needed to understand whether people who are already secure join the armed forces or do they become secure due to hard-core military training
