Abstract: This study investigates the role of sense of coherence (SOC) as a potential mediator in the relationship between adult attachment dimensions (anxious and avoidant), and coping (problem-focused, active emotion-focused, and avoidant emotion-focused). The study hypothesized that both adult attachment dimensions negatively predict SOC. SOC, in turn, positively predicts active coping (problem-focused coping and active emotion-focused coping) while negatively predicting avoidant coping (avoidant emotion-focused coping). SOC was also thought to mediate the relationship between adult attachment and coping. The study was administered using an online questionnaire. Regression analyses showed that both adult attachment dimensions negatively predicted SOC. SOC also positively predicted active coping while it did not predict avoidant coping. Mediational analyses found SOC to mediate both adult attachment dimensions and active coping. However, it did not mediate both the adult attachment dimensions and avoidant coping. The findings highlight the importance of strengthening one’s SOC to enhance active coping skills in times of stress, especially so in the current pandemic situation. To strengthen SOC, measures such as psycho-education and training programmes, as well as adequate coping resources could be offered. Limitations and future directions are also discussed.
