To explore and analyze the association between adolescent depression attachment symptoms and parental attachment patterns. METHODS: From May 2020 to April 2022 was selected as the study period, and 620 adolescents aged 11 to 18 years from outpatients and inpatients of the Third People's Hospital in Panzhihua City were selected as the study subjects during this period. This study used a questionnaire assessment to evaluate the frequency of adolescent attachment behaviours and the association with parental attachment patterns and family-related influences. RESULTS: In the results of the study, it was found that a total of 298 out of 620 adolescents attending the clinic had attachment behaviours (48.06%), of which 165 (55.37%) had 1-4 attachment behaviours (desire for companionship, craving for attention, craving for contact, etc.) and 133 (44.63%) had 5 or more attachment (repeated attachment behaviours) behaviours. A comparative analysis of the univariate results revealed a strong correlation between the presence or absence of a family environment, family type, primary caregiver's education level, parenting environment, family parenting style, and monthly per capita household income and non-adult attachment behaviour. Conclusion: Family environment, primary caregiver's education level and other factors are closely related to the occurrence of attachment behaviour in adolescents, and the development of attachment behaviour will affect the growth and development of adolescents.
