    This eight minute video introduced several attachment styles. The last one is also called disorganized attachment by some experts and Alexandra Stein has written Terror, Love and Brainwashing with disorganized attachment in cults as a central point.

    Alexandra Stein has a model of how cults work that she described in her book Terror, Love and Brainwashing. Attachment theory is central to her theory. It is also central to theories and approaches that several cult experts take to help ex cult members and they try to help ex cult members attain what they call "earned secure" attachment .

    Without attachment theory and the types of attachment you really do not have any of that.
