Attachment theory in bitesize - 2

If you read the previous post and you want to know more, maybe you will be interested in knowing that Attachment styles play a big role in shaping the dynamics of relationships in adult life. We can see in the picture above how childhood attachments are connected to adult ones. It is possible to take a test and verify your own attachment style.

For a start though, it might be good to familiarise ourselves with these adult versions of the childhood attachment styles and noticing how do we behave with our child and with others. Being aware of a certain style can enormously help in bringing clarity and, ultimately, a step towards change.
