What is Attachment?
Attachment is the capacity to form and maintain healthy emotional relationships. An attachment bond has unique properties. The capacity to create these special relationships begins in early childhood.
“Attachment is an emotional bond between two people in which there is an expectation of care and protection.”
- Dr. Susan Goldberg
