The title of this chapter immediately raises questions: why, and how, has attachment theory been extended; and in what way does one use a theory as a guide. Addressing each of these questions in turn divides the chapter into three sections. The first provides our reasons for extending attachment theory; the second describes the ways in which Bowlby and Ainsworth’s work has been extended, and the third explores some of the ways in which the extended theory can be used in practice.
