Attached: The New Science of Adult Attachment


Product Description

Published USA, 2011
In this book, the authors reveal how an understanding of adult attachment can help us find and sustain love. Pioneered by John Bowlby in the 1950s, the field of attachment posits that each of us behaves in relationships in one of three distinct ways:

Anxious people are often preoccupied with their relationships and tend to worry about their partner's ability to love them back.
Avoidant people equate intimacy with a loss of independence and constantly try to minimize closeness.
Secure people feel comfortable with intimacy and are usually warm and loving.

The authors guide readers in determining what attachment style they and their mate (or potential mate) follow, offering a roadmap for building stronger, more fulfilling connections with the people they love.
