Relationships are the core of life and the pattern and template for how to relate to others begins in the first year. The essence of attachment is- I see you, I hear you, I attune to your needs. What happens when this doesn't occur between a parent and child? Insecure attachment. There are several types of insecure attachment and in this episode we explore ambivalent attachment. We will take a look at what the parent who is creating this attachment pattern is like as well as some characteristic of the child. Dr. Barbara Sorrels gives a great analogy of kids on a playground to help grasp the different types of attachment patterns. The great news- there is hope for children and parents who have this attachment pattern.
