Hypnotic Thoughts: Understanding Attachment

Attachment Theory, formulated by Bowlby is the neuroscientific theory of the mechanism of human bonding, romantic relationships and stress management.  It is mediated by the Oxytocin system.  There are four types of attachment discussed by Dr. Saint-Victor and Paul Ramsay in this video (secure, avoidant, anxious, and disorganized).
