Attachment disorders are seen as generalised difficulties in relationships that emerge from attachment-related trauma and disturbed interactional patterns in the child’s primary caretaking experiences. In other words, the patterns observed reflect the infant’s current issues with attachment relationships and the way in which past relationship experiences have influenced current relationship models. Attachment disorders are not directly related to the attachment categories identified by the SSP; however, many infants diagnosed with an attachment disorder will also have a disorganised pattern of attachment.
