This study examined the relations of ruminative tendency and internal working models of attachment (Self-Model and Other-Model) to psychological symptoms among the Turkish university students. The sample comprised of 610 university students with 288 female and 319 male participants (3 unknown). The results revealed that both rumination and internal working models (self-model and other-model) significantly correlated with the higher level of psychological symptoms. However, after controlled for the impact of rumination, the relationship of self-model and psychological symptoms was no longer significant. Therefore, ceasing the rumination is suggested as a coping strategy to deal with psychological symptoms.
