Attachment theory is a psychological and ethological theory concerning relationships between humans. The most important tenet is that young children need to develop a relationship with at least one primary caregiver for their survival (getting their primary needs met) and normal social, emotional and neurological development.
To keep it simple, when we think of Attachment Types it's easiest to think of 3 Main Types: Anxious Attached, Avoidant Attached and Secure Attached. We can be a combination of all 3, but we mainly lead with one predominate Attachment Style. Attachment happens early on in our lives. We are very dependent on our caregivers as infants and children due too our massive brain growth outside the womb. We are extremely vulnerable which creates a strong need to be valid and attachment that will get our needs met.
When our needs as infants, or children aren't met it can greatly affect our attachment and neural pathways for attachment. We can also have attachments based on too much attention or what I call "hyper attention" on us.
