Abstract: This study was designed to assess the effectiveness of a six session cognitive-behavioral group intervention to improve coping skills for emotional regulation in male preadolescents and adolescents with attachment difficulties. There is a lack of research in the area of group interventions with male adolescents as well as interventions for adolescents with attachment difficulties. A multiple probe across groups and a multiple baseline across groups design were used in this study. The measures assessed difficulties in emotion regulation, coping strategies, adolescent adjustment, anger control, negative behaviors, and level of distress. Although there were no substantial findings and no hypotheses were supported, the current study did find that the participants enjoyed the group interaction and some wished to continue the group.
