We might reasonably infer that the strength of the parent’s capacity to reflect coherently on her past will significantly affect her ability to impart security to her child. And, as we will shortly see, the security of our own “state of mind with respect to attachment” may ultimately depend less on the particular facts of personal history—however problematic—than on the success of our efforts to make meaningful sense of that history.

We would do well, in this connection, to consider that much of the thinking, feeling, remembering, and behaving that we observe in our patients (and ourselves) has arisen and persists in order to preserve outdated—but all-too-enduring—internal working models of attachment. The “adhesiveness” of these models has long been central to the concerns of clinicians and researchers alike.
