Vieth quoted on Attachment Styles and their Role in Adult Relationships
A Vox article titled “What Attachment Styles Can and Can’t Explain,” explores the role of attachment styles in understanding the way people form relationships with others, Grace Vieth, a graduate student in the Social Interaction Lab discusses the concepts of how attachment styles are not fixed throughout life and relationships. While attachment styles stem from early childhood, during adulthood traits of attachment styles may be present rather than extreme examples. Vieth continues that attachment styles also have the potential to change over time through key relationships. Attachment styles are usually not as extreme and categorical as the media puts them out to be but are rather a working model.
