What is attachment?
How does attachment develop?
How does our attachment history continue to affect us?
Fortunately, that’s not the end of the story. Although we each develop strong attachment patterns that unconsciously shape much of our behavior, our attachment styles may be modified (under the right conditions). In the next article, I’ll discuss the different styles of attachment we can adopt, how each style causes particular problems, and how our problematic attachment styles may be modified to live a life that is more full and flourishing. See Attachment (Part 2): Understanding the Root of Problems in Relationships.
