Reaction Paper IIZenea MouProfessor Heshan FernandoPSY 108-002March 20, 2014Reaction Paper IIAttachment is an important part of psychological health. John Bowlby created the attachment theory in which he describes the long-term relationships between people. The most important part of the attachment theory is during infancy in which the infant develops a relationship with a primary caregiver, such as the mother. Although the attachment theory focused on infancy as one of the most important tenets, Nathan S.

Consedine et. al states that while aging, positive emotions increase and negative emotions decrease. The results showed the different relationships between emotions and attachment in later life.
