"Attachment theory applied in an org context"
This working paper explores the evolution and function of attachment in the context of adult relationships. The author explores childhood and adult attachment scenarios, two basic models of which are moving toward people or moving away from them. The first (termed anxious-ambivalent) manifests itself through intense protest or energetic efforts to regain proximity; the second (avoidant) is characterised by the suppression or denial of attachment needs and the maintenance of distance in relationships. A questionnaire offers a quick assessment of individual attachment style. The paper ends with suggestions on how to engage in interventions for change.
