Abstract:In recent years research into the topic of the association of alexithymia and coping styles gained relevance in the field of behavioral psychology. Previous investigations of the two concepts revealed independent associations with the concept of anxiety. However there has yet been no study addressing the issue of anxiety, as a possible moderator, in exploring an answer to what it is that strengthens or weakens the relationship between alexithymia and coping styles. This study makes an effort to showcase the theoretical concept of alexithymia, compose coping styles and test the link between the two via a possible moderating variable namely anxiety. However, overall, a moderation effect of anxiety could not be proven via moderation analysis, one can say that both correlational evidence and non-linear moderation scores suggest that anxiety could be of some influence on the link between alexithymia and coping styles.
