Learn More About Attachment Styles

Attachment styles define how we connect with others. It influences the way we react, interacts, respond, and behave with other people.

According to the Bowlby’s attachment theory, these types of styles are shaped during the early stages of childhood and are dependent on our relationship with our primary caregivers. It includes how we respond to others emotionally through our behaviors and interactions as adults.

The quality of attachment is greatly determined by the parental response to the infant when they are distressed. There are four main attachment styles –

1. Secure Attachment When a child feels secure and accepted with their primary caregivers. It is formed when a parent consistently attends to the child’s needs.
2. Dismissive Attachment – When a child feels abandoned by their primary caregiver. The caregiver fails to attend to the emotional needs of the child.
3. Anxious/Preoccupied Attachment – It is formed due to an inconsistent parenting style. The child feels anxious when separated from parents and are hard to console even after they return.
4. Fearful avoidant/ disorganized attachment – It is a combination of both anxious attachment and dismissive attachment style. Children with this style grow up believing that they are unworthy of love.

The style of attachment is passed down from generation to generation. Children learn emotional bonding from their parents. Hence, it is crucial to pay attention to how you are comforting your children when they are in distress. This plays a significant role in the child’s future relationships and how they relate and connect to their own children.
