Attachment is an emotional bond that forms in early childhood when we are 10 to 20 months old based on our parents’ behavior.
Unconscious patterns become set in place by the time we are two years old. Our attachment style is at the core of how we form adult relationships whether they are romantic or friendships.
An attachment disturbance is a dysfunctional relationship pattern that we repeat as adults.
These patterns are a consequence of conditioning during early childhood from our parents or caregivers.
Insecure attachment is a global issue
Over 32% of US adults suffer from an attachment disturbance with similar rates reported across other western countries.
Attachment disturbances are one of the biggest challenges faced in psychotherapy today. There are extraordinarily high rates of trauma in countries facing past instabilities such as war or economic deprivation.

Let’s end intergenerational trauma
When we heal our own pain, we can heal the next generation after us. Pain from an attachment disorder is passed on through the family line until someone is ready to heal it.
Issues are intergenerational, and can often be shared across several generations of families.
How does attachment impact our daily lives?
Our attachment styles shape the way we approach, communicate in, and effect our relationships. It might even predict the quality and duration of those relationships.
The influence of attachment even goes beyond relationships. It impacts the way we interact in various social contexts (even at work) and most importantly, the way we feel about ourselves.
