Attachment Styles

Updated: Feb 25



Attachment Styles: We’ve all heard of them, but what do they really mean? Attachment styles are characterized by different ways of interacting and behaving in relationships. For instance, in children it is a direct observation of how a child and parent interact. In adulthood it is an interaction among romantic partners.

So what do each of these styles even mean!? Real Life Counseling is here to tell you.
