At TRUE you can find therapy for attachment disorders in adults in Utah.  Attachment disorder can be difficult because it affects how you respond to others.  There are four main different types of attachments.  These attachments were keyed by John Bowlby and Mary Ainsworth back in the 1960’s.  Thus, they found four different attachments, secure attachments, anxious preoccupied, dismissive-avoidant, and disorganized.  This is a breakdown of the mentioned four to be worked on in therapy for attachment disorder in adults.  

First, Secure attachment makes you sad as your spouse leaves you but happy when they return, and you are able to meet your partner or children’s needs.  Second, anxious preoccupied is you being unable to meet others needs in your current relationships.  Third, dismissive-avoidant is you running away from connection or love from others.  Last, you struggle today to self-soothe and currently feel fear or respond erratically to others.
