The Attachment Theory

The Attachment Theory

he Attachment Theory

The Attachment Theory is a form of analysis and study of the qualities and characteristics of the neurobiological bonding system that communicates safety to children.

There are four classic attachment styles:
* Secure,
* Insecure- Anxious,
* Insecure Dismissive (aka Avoidant), and
* Fearful–Avoidant (aka Disorganized).

Depending on which of these styles, people grow up with, they turn into one of these:
* secure adult
* Insecure anxious adult
* Insecure avoidant adult
* Insecure disorganized adult

Note that the child-rearing behaviours of a parent had their origins as well.

Significant evidence exists regarding the fact that he/she is the product of his/her own caregivers as a child themselves. This is a critical way in which generational trauma continues a lineage of behaviours that gets past down from parent to child over and over again.

Is it possible to repair inadequate attachment for children and adults? The simple answer is yes, though the process is not necessarily simple. Can Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT Tapping) assist this process? Absolutely.

Exploring current relationship difficulties and neutralizing them with EFT tapping will often be the starting point that works its way backwards to the problems’ origin.

Is there another technique that can assist with rewiring the brain to create the needed safety? Again, the simple answer is yes. Matrix Reimprinting is a ‘descendant’ of EFT Tapping. It’s used to work directly on events that confirm the beliefs we have about ourselves and others. By going to the recalled experiences between 0-6 years of age, we can quickly target the outdated beliefs that resulted from those experiences. Matrix Reimprinting allows us to start and foster a healthier attachment with ourselves.

Many adults grew up in an abusive, negative, authoritarian, demanding, or repressive environment causing them to suffer from traumas.

If you have experienced traumas during your childhood and you believe those traumas now affect your daily life in a negative way, maybe I can help you. I’m trained in both EFT tapping and Matrix Reimprinting. Connect with me now.
