The Power Of Attachment

Perhaps the most profound discovery I made while studying psychology is the work of Dr. John Bowlby, which was confirmed and refined by developmental psychologist, Mary Ainsworth.

As infants, we typically form an attachment to our primary caregiver. By the time we are three (before most of us can recall memories) these attachment styles (secure, avoidant, ambivalent, and disorganized) have the greatest influence on the types of relationships we are naturally inclined to have with others.

Below, Dr. John Bowlby's Attachment Theory is explained.
