Attachment is a motivational force that is important in the survival needs of human beings. A distinction is made between organized (securely and insecurely) and disorganized attachment qualities. In addition, psychiatric classification systems enable us to diagnose clinically different types of attachment disorders. These attachment disorders are associated with early childhood emotional disorders that have far-reaching consequences for the complete personal development up to psychopathology in adults. The article examines the etiology, fundamentals of the diagnostics and effects of the disorder. Finally, treatment modalities are considered.
