One thought on “Do We Observe the Same Kinds of Attachment Patterns Among Adults that We Observe Among Children?

    Although the idea
    that early attachment experiences might have an influence on attachment
    style in romantic relationships is relatively uncontroversial, hypotheses
    about the source and degree of overlap between the two kinds
    of attachment orientations have been controversial. (These individual
    differences are often referred to as attachment styles, attachment
    patterns, attachment orientations, or differences in the
    organization of the attachme In the sections below I discuss a few of the parallels
    that have been discovered between the way that infant-caregiver relationships
    and adult romantic relationships function. Perhaps the most provocative and controversial implication of adult attachment
    theory is that a fewone’s attachment style as an adult is shaped by his
    or her interactions with parental attachment figures. For example, while separating couples
    generally showed more attachment behavior than nonseparating couples,
    highly avoidant adults showed much less attachment behavior than less
    avoidant adults. There is now an increasing amount of research that suggests that adult romantic
    relationships function in ways that are similar to infant-caregiver relationships,
    with a few noteworthy exceptions, of course. (These individual
    differences are often referred to as attachment styles, attachment
    patterns, attachment orientations, or differences in the
    organization of the attachment system.
