Attachment behaviour refers to the psychological and biological repertoire of actions that leads to the formation and maintenance of significant relationships. As described by Bowlby is is proximity-seeking behavior[1]. Attachment behavior is activated when the individual experiences some threat and then seeks proximity to a preferred other and experiences a sense of safety and security in the presence of that other.
