Product description

According to psychiatrist and neuroscientist, Dr. Amir Levine and Rachel Heller, the answer is a resounding, ‘yes.’ 

In Attached, Levine and Heller reveal how an understanding of adult attachment— the most advanced relationship science in existence today— can help us find and sustain love. Pioneered by psychologist John Bowlby in the 1950s, the field of attachment posits that each of us behaves in relationships in one of the three distinct ways:

  • Anxious people often preoccupied with their relationships tend to worry about their partner’s ability to love them back.
  • Avoidant people equate intimacy with a loss of independence and constantly try to minimize closeness.
  • Secure people feel comfortable with intimacy and are usually warm and loving.

Levine and Heller guide readers in determining what attachment style they and their mate (or potential mate) follow, offering a road map for building stronger, more fulfilling connections with the people they love.
