Episode 16: What's Your Attachment Style?

What I wonder about with all of my clients is how do they relate to others? What’s at the heart of this question is the idea of attachment styles. John Bowlby, who is the father of the attachment theory, calls it lasting psychological connectedness between human beings. We all exhibit attachment to our caregivers when we are babies and this style can either be a secure attachment or insecure attachment. This helps us form how we interact in relationships thereafter. The emotional bond that develops between adult romantic partners partly uses the same attachment system as we use when we are attaching to a caregiver when we are infants. Learn about what adult attachment styles look like, what attachment-related anxiety and attachment related-avoidance are, and how you can alter your attachment styles as an adult.
