Dynamic Maturational Model
of Patterns of Attachment (AC)

Family Relations Institute

A/C: A/C strategies combine any subpatterns. In practice, most A/C’s consist of the more distorted patterns, i.e., A3-4 or higher and C3-4 or higher. Individuals using these strategies display either very sudden shifts in behavior or, in the case of blended strategies (AC), they show very subtle mixing of distortion and deception. The extreme of the blended form of AC is psychopathy.
