From our earliest years, we develop an attachment style that follows us through life, replaying in our daily emotional landscape, our relationships, and how we feel about ourselves. With The Power of Attachment, Dr. Diane Poole Heller, a pioneer in attachment theory and trauma resolution, shows how overwhelming experiences can break our vital connections internally-with others, with the physical world around us, and even with our spiritual foundations.
The good news is that we can restore and reconnect at all levels, regardless of our past.
"As we heal and move toward secure attachment," teaches Dr. Heller, "we become aware of triggers and patterns in our relationships. Our nervous system learns to be more regulated. Things don't throw us off so easily. And we open our capacity to love."
Through key insights and many practical exercises, this book invites us to begin the journey to greater vulnerability, intimacy, wholeness, and resilience.
