Attached. The New Science of Adult Attachment and How it Can Help You Find- and Keep- Love

Author: Amir Levine, and Rachel Heller

“Do you want to know why your spouse doesn’t pay attention to you?  Attached is the science of love.”

Attached is an easy to read summary of Attachment theory.  Attachment theory is a helpful model for understanding relationships and how you feel in relationships.  This book will help you understand why there are some relationships that make you feel secure and safe and there are others that make you feel wildly insecure.  It even helps describe why you and your partner have the same fights over and over.

The book offers an overview of the 3 different Attachment bonds: Secure, Avoidant, and Ambivalent.  It offers a few different questionnaires to help you figure out your Attachment style and the Attachment style of those you are in relationship with.  The book even offers hope with practical suggestions for moving from an unhealthy Attachment style to one that is more healthy and secure.
