Session 1n2 – The Five People You Won’t Meet in Heaven
Kim Bartholomew’s model of self and other, from “Avoidance of Intimacy, an Attachment Perspective”
Longitudinal 30 year social science study showed that the main predictor (causal factor) of five major calamaties people suffer in life is lack of closeness to the parents.
Children exhibit two main types of attachment behavio categoriess, proximity seeking and signaling. How the parents respond to these is instrumental in shaping the child.
Recent gallup poll: 31% of Americans view God as “judgmental”, 25% view God as “benevolent”, 23% distant, 16% “critical”. Those with secure attachment relationships God as loving, protective, not distant, not inaccessible, comforting, etc.
How do you view God?

Bartholomew’s model, continued…
God’s plan for parenting
Secure people aren’t afraid of emotions and are comfortable with intimacy.
Anxious people are “needy”, fragile and have low self esteem.
Avoidant people dismiss intimacy and are strongly independent. (Stoicism)
The fearful fear intimacy and are socially avoidant. They are often tagged as having disassociative disorders.
