Attachment and Women's Faith Development
Joung, Eun Sim
Journal of Beliefs & Values, v27 n2 p145-155 Aug 2006
This article explores the relationship between human attachment and God attachment, particularly in Christian women's experiences of faith. It is based on the attachment perspective as a conceptual framework. The main aim was to evolve an attachment-theoretical approach to women's faith development and to offer a complementary path to interpret women's faith development. The method was qualitative, as the data were collected via biographical narrative depth interviews. The findings suggest that an early attachment experience is a significant factor in the women's faith development; three patterns of women's faith are presented in which the differences in their images of self and God are represented accordingly.
