Product Details


“Jessica Baum’s forthrightness, vulnerability, and clinical sensitivity provide the foundation for a powerful journey of growth for anyone who has experienced a nonsecure form of attachment formally known as ‘ambivalent’ and publicly referred to being ‘anxiously attached.’ The science of relational connections between child and parent, known as attachment research, reveals a preoccupation and revving up of our drive for connection that has the inner experience of learned anxiety and uncertainty. Because of neural plasticity, we can focus our attention to build neural networks that in our childhood did not have the chance to grow how they might have to give us equanimity even in the face of relational challenges. Now you can learn to cultivate the skills of inner soothing provided in this excellent guide—and you’ll discover how to ‘learn’ or ‘earn’ security in this science-backed yet practical set of steps to build the capacities that were not developed in your youth. Welcome to the challenge—and opportunity—to transform your life from the inside out!”
—Daniel J. Siegel, MD, executive director, Mindsight Institute; clinical professor, UCLA School of Medicine; New York Times bestselling author of IntraConnected, Aware, and Mind, and coauthor, Parenting from the Inside Out

“For any of us who repeatedly find ourselves in relationships that increase our anxiety, Jessica Baum’s Anxiously Attached is essential. She offers equal portions of science and heart to help us understand why this happens, charts a healing path that will allow us to develop security within, and walks with us step by step as we open to the mutually supportive, ever-deepening relationships that we all desire. A wonderful book for our partners, too!”
—Bonnie Badenoch, PhD, LMFT, author of Being a Brain-Wise Therapist and The Heart of Trauma

“Every so often a fresh voice jumps off the page and contributes something important to our understanding of relationships. Written in a down-to-earth, easily relatable style, Jessica Baum tells it like it is—and teaches us how to stop losing ourselves in others and come home to ourselves again.

Bravo.”
—Albert Wong, PhD, professor of psychology, California Institute of Integral Studies
