Product Description

In this Webinar: 

A person with a fearful-avoidant attachment often lives in an ambivalent state of being afraid of being both too close to or too distant from significant others. They have not developed an organized strategy for getting their needs met by others, because their early caretakers were disorienting and alarming. They alternate between moving toward their partner and needing emotional distance. They tend to be mixed up or unpredictable in their patterns.

As adults, these individuals tend to find themselves in rocky or dramatic relationships with many highs and lows and  fears of both being abandoned and being intimate.
