Attachment Theory

Attachment theory was originated in the 1930’s through the work of John Bowlby, a psychiatrist, known for treating emotionally disturbed children.  It is a concept that includes the importance of attachment in regards to personal development and relationships. Bowby believed that a strong physical and emotional attachment to at least one primary caregiver is critical to personal development. Therapists using attachment theory can help clients identify their personal attachment style. Knowing your attachment style can help you gain a better understanding of how you relate to yourself and others.
