When we stop to read this writing because we must be clear in what attachment represents in our life, behavior, personal growth, probably we will be fully identified with its scope, discovered that both we know it handle or like this it makes it for us. However this time we stop to evaluate once again what it represents, its scope, its impact on our behavior, personality. In times in which we live, especially in the scenario where we operate, full of uncertainty, insecurity, mistrust, risk, in a very materialistic atmosphere of violence, fears, makes that attachment is manifested in several ways and that in negative cases, they can cause us psychological conditions that require treatment in order to be able to free ourselves from its serious consequences. As people are continually launching new relationships, which lead to stories of personal and interpersonal experiences that shape how we think and feel about those relationships and how we behave in them. It has recently been elaborated an attachment theory to explain these processes, basically the shape and the reason by which we establish our first relationships with significant people. The first to develop a theory of attachment was John Bowlby, in the year 1969 and subsequently revised in 1973 and 1980.
This theory has helped to improve the understanding of personality processes and individual adults differences, since the division of the 3 types of attachment in children, according to the theory and research would have a correlation with important variables in adult life, as they are the characteristics of personality, the way in which we establish interpersonal relationshipsfeatures of cognitive and emotional processes. In this lies the importance of the study of attachment, because of this, knowledge allows us to explore different dimensions of human behavior. In brief we sought in traditional attachment theory developed by John Bowlby and Subsequently some evidence found in various studies on the relationship between styles of attachment and cognitive processes, interpersonal relationships, emotions and personality variables.
