Research on these patterns of adult attachment has been heavily influenced by the development of the Adult Attachment Interview (AAI; George, Kaplan, & Main, 1996; see Hesse, 1999, for a review). In this interview, the participant is asked to respond to questions designed to activate the attachment system, such as questions about early separations, parental responses to childhood distress or illness, significant losses or abuse, instances of parental rejection, and so on. Unique patterns of adult attachment have been described in the developmental research literature.

And, if others cannot be relied on, the tendency is to fall back on the self (George & West, 2001). The counterdependence (Bartholomew & Horowitz, 1991) seen in such clients comes from a necessity to compensate for a fundamental failure to believe in the availability of important others. As attachment continues to be avoided over the course of the life span, experiences accumulate that serve to strengthen this way of seeing things, and fail to disconfirm it. If one constructs a world that lacks interdependence, opportunities for intimacy become fewer and farther between over time.

In considering these internalized expectations, Bowlby distinguished between internal working models of the self and internal working models of other people. The former refers to “whether or not the self is judged to be the sort of person towards whom anyone, and the attachment figure in particular, is likely to respond in a helpful way,” while the latter refers to “whether or not the attachment figure is judged to be the sort of person who in general responds to calls for support and protection” (1973, p.
