Our special Thanks goes to…
A thank you goes to the British psychiatrist and psychoanalyst John Bowlby (1907-1990). He has shown that the lifelong pursuit of close emotional relationships is specifically human. The most important thing is not the sex drive, but the need for security, which we experience in the felt presence of attachment figures. Thus, dependency is no longer negatively connoted, but the ability to bond - of the person reaching out but also the one responding - indicates mentally stable personalities.
Our thanks also goes to the Canadian psychologist Sue Johnson (*1947). Together with her colleagues, she has developed EFT, an attachment-oriented psycho-therapeutic approach that combines systematic and experimental interventions and focuses on emotions and encounters in the here and now as the driving force for growth. According to her, a therapist is at the same time a process facilitator as well as a temporary attachment figure.
