Childhood Attachment, Internal Working Models & Adult Relationships


Attachment problems affect people a great deal, and I believe most of us are not fully aware of how our entire lives can be mined simply because we don’t know the root of our relationship problems and how to heal them. Delinquency, aggression, depression, and affectionless psychopathy (no affection or concern for others) are just a few of the many issues that arise in people’s lives as a result of unhealthy bonds in their early childhood. Although Bowlby believed the damage was probably unrepairable, I think it’s possible to mend ourselves as long as we are willing to heal not only ourselves but our family lineage as well.
