Psychotherapy with Attachment and the Brain in Mind
Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina, 1917
Then the child feels security - reduced anxiety, safety and predictability.
This results in the child being more playful, spontaneous, happy, exploration-oriented, and sociable.
The child becomes defensively avoidant of contact and appears indifferent about separation and reunion.
The child becomes ambivalent with the attachment figure, clinging, and anxious about separation and exploration.

attachment behaviors develop due to increasing fear and anxiety.
“…a coherent interview is both believable and true to the listener; in a coherent interview, the events and affects intrinsic to early relationships are conveyed without distortion, contradiction or derailment of discourse.

Such an subject is thinking as the interview proceeds, and is aware of thinking with and communicating to another; thus coherence and collaboration are inherently inter-twinned and interrelated.”
According to Mary Main….
“I had a weak father, domineering mother, contemptuous teachers, sadistic sergeants, destructive male friendships, emasculating girlfriends, a wonderful wife, and three terrific children. Where did I go right?”
– Jules Feiffer, illustrator and satirist
