Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I’ll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about.

Attachment: a strong emotional tie that bonds one person intimately with another person.

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) :  Understands emotions as centrally important in the experience of self and others, in both adaptive and maladaptive functioning, and in therapeutic change.  Using the notion of transforming emotion with emotion, the therapist guides clients to express emotions that pull for compassion and connection.
