Developmental psychologist Kathleen Stassen Berger (2017) states that attachment islifelong, beginning before birth and influencing relationships throughout life (p. 184). In addition, insecure attachment and especially disorganized attachment predict emotional problems both externalizing (such as aggression) and internalizing (such as depression) (p. 186).
Pages 158 through 159 define secure attachment and the various forms of insecure attachment that exist between babies and their caregivers. Answer the following questions after reading Section 5.1 in your textbook:
Based on your observations (in marriage, parenting, and/or friendship), describe an adult who is securely or insecurely attached. Please do not use any names if you are thinking of a real-life example. What might this person’s relationships with their own children and with their romantic partners look like? Please connect the traits you observe to specific ideas cited in Chapter 5 of Kail & Cavanaugh (2019).
What implications might attachment styles have on one’s faith or on one’s relationship with God?
As you respond to these questions, also reflect upon our biblical perspective for the session. How might a strong relationship with the Lord influence healthy attachment?
