The four attachment styles namely secure, avoidant insecure, ambivalent insecure, and disorganized insecure attachment proposed by Mary Ainsworth (1970), Main and Soloman 1986 (Disorganized- insecure attachment). The items are constructed on socio-cultural and educational circumstances of the individuals using mix strategy for construction of the scale by selecting the items from various attachment scales and by writing some original items. Hence the tool will be largely suitable for measuring the attachment styles among the adults and adolescents in India. The tool has good construct validity and reliability.
