Attachment relationships and the bonds that form are arguably the most important aspect of development that have implications for future development. This thesis will address the intersection of attachment and domestic violence and how the intergenerational patterns of attachment are prevalent in a population with histories of DV. Two case studies from a social service agency will be used to illustrate these concepts.
