Neurobiology shows this. Attachment is important from cradle to grave. There is a connection between early attachment and later adulthood and he looked mostly at mother child relationships and conducted in “Mother blaming” now we discuss caregivers and fathers also. Attachments- Provide the bond that sustains love relationships and leads to the creation of a safe haven and a secure base for relationships (positive attachments). Mostly between parent and child, siblings, couples and friendships. -The building blocks of attachment are acceptance, emotional accessibility and physical and emotional responsiveness. Strange situation Test- Mary Ainsworth-sets an attractive setting with the observer, mother leaves and then returns. Look especially at what happens when the mother leaves and when she returns and the child’s reaction determines attachment. Shows secure attachment if the child cries when the mother leaves but is soothed when the mother comes back. -Adults feel same distress but have a level of knowledge to know what typically happens; we develop strong bonds when we go against our culture and express our emotions and vulnerability. Touch is also very important in respect to responsiveness but our culture doesn’t enforce that. Attachments in Crisis-Attachment needs are heightened when there is a traumatic event, lack of responsiveness leads to injured and insecure relationships. Crisis can bring people closer or drive us apart and if people experience a crisis together both need things so no needs get met. Insecure Attachment-Insecurity, stress, physical illness, lack of trust, leads to fear and sense of worthlessness. Hazen and Shaver-Draws a connection between attachment patterns early in life and 3 attachment styles. 1) Secure with 55% of adults; 2) Avoidant 25% (Ignores mother and doesn’t care) and 3) Anxious Ambivalent 20% (don’t settle, clingy). Bartholomew and Horowitz-Developed a 4 category model of adult attachment. Secure-Low attachment anxiety and low attachment avoidant. Happy to see them when come home, ok when they need to leave. Sense of separateness and togetherness and fluidity between then. Feel ok about then being gone but will miss them Preoccupied- high attachment anxiety and low attachment avoidant. Always want to be with them, scared when not together. Not comfortable with them leaving, constant worrying and anxiety. Avoidant dismissing- Low attachment anxiety but high attachment avoidant. Lead separate live, not really interested and don’t care. Avoidant Fearful- High attachment anxiety and high attachment avoidant. No outward sense of being cut off but a sense of withdrawal and fear of being hurt. Attachment Anxiety-How much a person worries their partner will not be available. Attachment Avoidant-Degree a person distrusts a partners good will and tendencies to maintain an emotional and behavioural distance from the partner. Stability of styles-Longitudinal studies show that attachment styles are consistent over time, however, major life evens may change the attachment style. John Gottman-Studies what makes marriage succeed/fail in couples by measuring successful and failing relationships. They had a “love lab” where they collected physical and emotional responses. Can predict with 90% accuracy whether a relationship will succeed or fail within first few minutes. Sense of we-ness is positive in a relationship. Avoid 4 horsemen of the Apocalypse. -Amount of positive affect during conflict and a positive view of partner when fighting is the key to a successful relationship. No evidence to find that anger is a destructive emotion. 4Horsemen of the Apocalypse-Criticism of flaws in personality (You’re not supposed to do that), defensiveness (None of your business), contempt (talking to a partner as a superior, moral judgment of partner) and stonewalling (ignoring or avoiding them/their point of view). Solvable Problems-Conflicts that can be resolved; tend to be less intense. Perpetual Problems-Will always be a part of the couple relationship, often involve unmet needs or dreams and tend to make the couple furious with each other. Predicting divorce-Harsh start up to an argument, 4 horsemen of the apocalypse, flooding (overwhelmed by emotion), body languag
