So I have decided how I am going to structure my essay on the attachment theory:
First paragraph will be on a brief explanation of the attachment theory and Bowlby’s ideas on attachment will be outlined.
The second paragraph will be on the secure attachment style and will include how children can become securely attached (e.g with primary care givers offering a safe and supportive environment) and what the impacts of having a secure attachment style has on adults.
The third paragraph will be on the preoccupied attachment style and will outline the same as above.
The fourth paragraph will be on the dismissing attachment style and will cover the same issues as in the secure attachment style.
The fifth paragraph will cover the fearful avoidant attachment style and will also explore the impacts of the style on adults and how the style is developed.
The sixth paragraph will explore the resilience of attachment styles into adulthood and also look at how attachment styles may change and alter depending on who and what relationship an individual is in.
Through out the essay personal examples will be used to highlight the points made in each section.
If anyone had any suggestions on what else I could add that would be great.
Good luck guys!!
