Memories of autobiographical memory include the personal events that we experience and interpersonal relationships that occupy significant role in the early years of life and constituting the memories. The research purpose was to assess the structural model of attachment style relationships, autobiographical memory and identity style. Therefore, in a descriptive-correlation study, a number of 350 male and female students were selected through multi-stage sampling and tested with regard to the attachment style, identity style and autobiographical memory. The results of structural equation modeling (Lisrel) indicated that secure attachment style and insecure avoidant style influence the the identity styles with the mediating role of autobiographical memory. Moreover, insecure anxiety attachment style influences the identity styles without the mediating role of autobiographical memory. Such findings are of crucial importance in terms of applied application by the clinical psychologists. Therapists who consider the memories of therapeutic value in the therapy sessions and therapist who study the mediating role of the function of autobiographical memories can make use of the strategies that increase the function of the memory in helping the adolescents and adults with identity and attachment styles’ problems.
