- The first aim of this research is to examine whether insecure attachment can at least partially explain why children of depressed parents are more vulnerably to depression. A second aim is to address the role of parenting in the transmission of depressive symptoms and insecure attachment. Third, we want to examine emotion regulation as an intervening variable in relations between attachment and children's depressive symptoms.
