S. Hussain and Z. Ahmed

Abstract—This research was conducted to study the alexithymia in association of parental acceptance-rejection among student population in Gilgit-Pakistan. A total of 116 students (male 95 & female 21) were recruited from different educational institutes of Gilgit city. The Toronto Alexithymia Scale was administered to participants along with short forms of the Adult Parental Acceptance-Rejection Questionnaires for mothers and for fathers. Results showed that perceived paternal and maternal acceptance were significantly correlated with the students’ alexithymia. Additionally, regression analysis indicated that both perceived paternal and maternal acceptance independently predicted students’ alexithymia.

Index Terms—Parental acceptance-rejection, students, paternal acceptance, maternal acceptance, alexithymia.
