In this research, it is aimed to investigate the relationship between the attachment styles (secure, dismissing, preoccupied, fearful) and the trait anger and the anger expression of university students, considering the great importance and effects of the first relations with the mother/caregiver in the early years of life on the personality development. The findings revealed that there are strong relations between attachment styles and the level of anger, anger suppression, anger expression and anger control. Results noted that the university students who are securely attached have significantly low trait anger and anger expression while they have significantly high anger control. The university students who have dismissing and preoccupied attachment styles have significantly higher level of trait anger and anger suppression. The dismissing ones also have high level of anger expression. There is no relation between the fearful attachment style and the trait anger and anger expression.
