dc.description.abstract This thesis proposes a study to test the hypothesis that adolescents with anxious attachment tend to be more likely to have an offensive schema in their social information processing. The measure of the offensive schema will be achieved by the correct response and response times in a recognition task. Participants will undergo a series of tests. The Experience in Close Relationship (ECR) will be used to test their attachment type. Puppet learning task and recognition task will test their correct responses and response times. As a preliminary study, the results from this proposed study will help shed lights on future research on the potential meditational role of schema in linking the relationship between anxious attachment and aggressive behaviors in adolescents.
