Low levels of social well-being in family members make them unable to communicate properly with others and factors such as emotional intelligence and attachment style seem to play an important role in this regard. Emotional intelligence and attachment style was assessed with social well-being. The research method was quantitative descriptive-correlation. The statistical population in the present study includes all students of different fields of study in the Islamic Azad University of Rasht in the academic year 1400-99 of Roodsar city unit with 1800 people. The statistical sample of the present study includes 157 students of engineering, humanities, and experimental sciences, of which 91 were women and 66 of them, were men that selected from the statistical population as the available sampling method. The research instruments were Collins and Reed Attachment Questionnaire (1990), Farnham Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire (2000), and Keys Social Welfare Questionnaire (1998). Data were analyzed by SPSS software version 23 using descriptive tests such as mean and standard deviation and Pearson inferential test and regression analysis. Findings showed that there was a significant positive relationship between emotional intelligence and social well-being (P <0.01, R = 0.400) and ambiguous insecure style (P <0.01, R = -0.332) and Avoidant insecure style (P <0.01, R = -0.311) had a significant negative relationship with social well-being. There was a significant positive relationship between safe style and social well-being (P <0.01, R = 0.371). It can be concluded that emotional intelligence and secure attachment style can play a positive role as important factors in the formation and strengthening of the social well-being of family members.
