Popis The presented longitudinal study focuses on the development of work-related psychological capital (PsyCap). PsyCap consists of self-efficacy, hope, resilience, and optimism and is known as the factor that relates to job attitudes, job performance, and the way how people experience stress at work. PsyCap is a relatively stable characteristic. However, it can be developed during life. The main objective of this study is to explore how the quality of close social relationships in adolescence contributes the PsyCap development. The study combines new data and data from a longitudinal study that followed a cohort of children born between 3/1991 and 6/1992 in one Czech region from the prenatal period until their adulthood. At the age of 15 and 17, 553 respective 497 Czech adolescents completed a set of questionnaires including questionnaires focused on their attachment and self-esteem. We will contact them again at the age of 30 and ask them to assess their work-related PsyCap. The attachment to parents was measured at the age of 15 and in the age of 17 by the Inventory of Parent and Peer Attachment (IPPA-R, Armsden & Greenberg, 1987: Gullone & Robinson, 2005). The attachment to peers was measured at the same time by Peer Attachment Style Questionnaire (Sirucek & Siruckova, 2008). We will also control for the level of self-esteem that was measured at the age of 15 and 17 by an adapted Rosenberg´s self-esteem scale (Jezek & Lacinova, 2008, Rosenberg, 1965). PsyCap will be measured by Compound Psychological Capital Scale (CPC-12r, Dudasova et al., 2021) that will be administered online in the period between December 2021 and February 2022. The hypotheses about the influence of attachment in adolescence on PsyCap in adulthood will be tested using regression analyses. The major risk limitation of the study is the potential sample mortality and a low test power in case of a small number of respondents who will complete the questionnaire at the age of 30. Nevertheless, many respondents have been in contact with the current research team and have participated in multiple studies during the past 10 years.
