“One place that I hope CCEF can always be a great help to the church is by thinking about the hot-button words that are out there. And they change every few years, but one of the hottest words these days and has been for a while is the word, “attachment.” Thankfully, CCEF has an expert in counseling children, which is where the vast majority of the action on attachment is. So if you’ve heard the word “attachment” and aren’t quite sure what it means and how to think about it, I hope you’ll be excited to hear what we’ve got to say today.” Host, Alasdair Groves sits down with Julie Lowe to talk about attachment theory.
