Attachment Awareness FAQs
What are the different types of attachment?
There are three different types of attachment: ‘secure’, ‘anxious’ and ‘avoidant’. ‘Secure’ attached people typically had a healthy childhood and are better at approaching intimate relationships. ‘Anxious’ and ‘avoidant’ people find intimacy more of a struggle, often due to neglect, poor parenting or an abusive relationship.
How can I provide ‘secure’ attachment parenting?
A ‘secure’ attachment bond comes from the emotional exchanges that brings the two (parent and child) together; It ensures the child feels safe and calm enough to experience optimal development of their nervous system.
