This week’s Lifelong Human Development lecture generated a strong reaction in me, particularly around Attachment Theory.

One of the points in the ‘adult’ box to the right points to my personal distress over the end of my marriage, but my marriage breakup isn’t the first time that I’ve been distraught over a relationship ending. There have been two other relationships in my life that have seen me distraught, unable to function, when they ended.

I wonder if there is literature extant that helps to ‘correct’ the imbalance that ambivalent attachment can bring.
