Abstract:

This study aimed to determine whether the early separation anxiety symptom levels of young adults differ according to their personal and familial characteristics. It is retrospective. The sample consisted of 284 university students attending Anadolu University in Turkey, in the 2004–2005 academic years. Data were collected from the Separation Anxiety Symptoms Scale (Ceyhan, 2000) and a questionnaire. Analysis of the data was conducted using independent t-test and ANOVA. Results revealed that the levels of early separation anxiety symptoms of females are significantly higher than those of males. Also, that the level of early separation anxiety symptoms of young adults who were only children was significantly higher than those of first, middle, and last children. There was no significant difference in terms of the variables such as mothers' and fathers' attitudes perceived retrospectively, attendance at nursery school, or mothers' working conditions during childhood. Results are discussed in the light of literature regarding the limitations of the study.
