What is the difference between an attachment disturbance and an attachment disorder?
An attachment disturbance is characterized by a series of behaviors that play out in certain relationships/social situations that trigger your attachment system (i.e. you are on a date with someone who is avoidant; his or her dismissive behavior activates your preoccupied attachment style). An attachment disturbance is not something you bring with you in every social context. Instead, it’s what gets activated by particular triggers within social interactions.
For example, an attachment disturbance is not something you bring on a date; rather, it might get activated during your date. In contrast, an attachment disorder manifests as a pervasive way of being and behaving across every relationship.
What is the difference between Avoidant & Dimissing Attachment?
The original attachment styles differentiated between children. The correct term is dismissing attachment in adults and avoidant attachment in children. The problem is that no one knows this, so for the sake of making our website and blog fit with popular culture we’ve used both terms.
