This chapter describes an attachment-based model of social support in couples, which emphasizes the interpersonal and transactional nature of support processes and focuses on the roles of both the care giver and the support seeker. The authors describe their ongoing programs of research on normative differences in care giving and seeking, as well as how individual differences in attachment security affect support processes.

Keywords:   attachment, attachment style, care giving, couples, safe haven, secure base, social support, support-seeking
