ABSTRACT

The study aimed to explore the relationship between attachment style, vicarious resilience and vicarious traumatization among Indian counsellors dealing with trauma work. It is a quantitative correlational study using purposive and snowball methods for data collection. Sixty counsellors that volunteered to participate in the study completed three measures- The Relationship Questionnaire, Vicarious Resilience Scale and Vicarious Trauma Scale. Correlation and multiple regression analysis conducted using the IBM SPSS software version 24 revealed that there is no relationship between attachment styles, vicarious resilience and vicarious traumatization among the participants. The results also indicate that attachment styles accounted for 23.5% of the variance in vicarious resilience and 26.4% of the variance in vicarious traumatization.  The applications are useful to understand the differences in the predictability of attachment styles on both vicarious resilience and vicarious traumatization. Counsellors with a preoccupied attachment style might consider coping measures to balance its impact on their level of vicarious traumatization and with a fearful attachment style might pay attention to build their level of resilience.
