Adult Attachment Scale (AAS)
The Adult Attachment Scale (AAS) was officially developed in 1990 but built on the earlier work of Hazen & Shaver (1987) and Levy & Davis (1988). The scale was developed by decomposing the original three prototypical descriptions (Hazen & Shaver, 1987) into a series of 18 items.
The scale consists of 18 items scored on a 5 point Likert-type scale. It measures adult attachment styles named “Secure”, “Anxious” and “Avoidant”, defined as:
• Secure = high scores on Close and Depend on subscales, a low score on the Anxiety subscale
• Anxious = high score on Anxiety subscale, moderate scores on Close and Depend on subscales
• Avoidant = low scores on Close, Depend, and Anxiety subscales
