This study examined the longitudinal reciprocal relationship between attachment to peers and shyness in adolescence. To analyse the longitudinal reciprocal relationships between attachment to peers and shyness during adolescence, an autoregressive cross-lagged model based on data collected in a Korean Children's and Youth Panel Survey(KCYPS) was applied(2012-2014, 5 years). The results of the analysis are: First, previous attachment to peers had a significant effect on shyness in the future. Second, previous shyness had a significant effect on attachment to peers in the future. These results show that there is a reciprocal relationship between attachment to peers and shyness. This suggests that it is important to increase the security of attachment to peers in order to decrease shyness in adolescence, and to decrease shyness in order to increase the level of attachment to peers in adolescence. In addition, it is also suggested that diverse intervention programs to facilitate attachment to peers and decrease shyness at school should be developed.
