Positive psychology/attachment theory/Shaver/Mikulincer: attachment theory includes ideas about the path to ‘optimal functioning’ that have much in common with humanistic and self-actualization theories of personality (e.g., Maslow 1968(1); Rogers 1961(2)) and today’s ‘positive psychology’ movement (e.g., Seligman 2002(3)). Attachment theory emphasizes not only fears and defences related to attachment insecurities, but also the ways in which good relationships can build psychological resources and broaden perspectives and skills associated with a sense of security. (Following Fredrickson 2001(4), we call this the ‘broaden and build cycle of attachment security’.)
