The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationships between attachment to parents and resilience of adolescents in a Turkish sample of high school students, which consisted of 451 volunteers (252 females and 199 males), ranging in age from 15 to 19 years. To collect information about research variables, ‘Short Form of Inventory of Parent and Peer Attachment’ and ‘Child and Youth Resilience Measure’ were used. The analysis was conducted in two steps. In the first step, descriptive statistics and correlations between variables were calculated; in the second step, stepwise multiple regression analysis was conducted to estimate the relative contributions of the attachment to parents as predictor variables to the variance in resilience. One of the major findings of this study is that significant positive relationships exist between the attachment to mother and father and resilience. Another major finding of this study is that both attachment to mother and father significantly contributed to the variance in resilience and attachment to mother has the highest contribution to resilience..
