The ending of a relationship with an attachment figure can be traumatic in itself. It can also stir up many unprocessed and conflicting emotions from early attachment experiences and prior partners, as well as primary caregivers .

Early attachment experiences also form the foundation for our habitual ways of viewing ourselves, interacting with ourselves and how we relate to difficult emotions. 

Such conditions can, in many cases, contribute to explaining why some people can get “stuck” and need therapy for relationship dissolution in order to move on.
