Abstract

The article discusses affective aspects of professional relationships involving management or supervision, focusing on negative emotions in the context of attachment theory. A survey study involving two dozen British nurses is described. The nurses' reactions to their supervisors are characterized as stable, anxious or avoidant. A discussion of event interpretation, accountability and relational outcomes of conflicts is presented. It is noted that the study sample is small, professionally homogeneous and over eighty percent female.
