In Young Adulthood to
Across the Lifespan

Resources

We are born relational. Our needs for comfort and protection do not disappear as we reach adulthood. Whether you are 18 or 108 (!) most of us have special people we turn to at moments of need – friends, partners or family members. Often such relationships are mutually supportive, we are attachment figures for each other.   We find out who we are, how we want to be, how we want to change, through our relationships.  Here are resources for information and reflection on why attachment matters from young adulthood right across the lifespan.
