:: Men with childhood sexual experiences: The role of attachment and coping in long-term psychological adjustment
  Patricia Lyle, M.S.
Auburn University
  This survey examines both sexual and non-sexual coping responses to stress and how such responses are related to attachment to parents and friends. Additionally, comparisons between men with early sexual experiences and those without such experiences will be possible. This research is a replication and extension of my thesis study in which rates of early sexual experience were near 20% and there was a .43 correlation between parental attachment and the use of sexualized coping behavior when under stress. The current project will examine non-sexual coping as well for similar relationships with attachment.
