Abstract
To explore the relationship among interpersonal relationship, coping style tendency, loneliness and pet attachment among the undergraduates. College Students Interpersonal Comprehensive Diagnostic scale (CSICDS), Simplified Coping Style Questionnaire (SCSQ), UCLA Loneliness Scale (UCLALS) and Lexington Attachment to Pets Scale (LAPS) were administered to 547 undergraduate pet owners who were selected by stratified random sampling from 7 universities in Guangzhou City. 1) The total score of CSICDS positively predict the total score of LAPS (r=0.160, P<0.01). 2) The coping style tendency score had mediating effect between the total score of CSICDS and UCLALS, while the total score of UCLALS had mediating effect in the relationship between coping style tendency score and the total score of LAPS. 3) The total score of CSICDS had an indirect effect on the undergraduates’ pet attachment through the coping style tendency-loneliness mediating chain. Interpersonal relationship distress not only had a direct role on undergraduates’ pet attachment, but also indirectly influenced it through the coping style tendency-loneliness mediating chain.
