Episode Notes:

- The video discusses the concept of attachment and its significance for survivors of childhood trauma.

- Childhood trauma and abuse can severely impact attachment, creating significant issues and difficulties in feeling securely attached to caregivers or trusted individuals.

- Secure attachment is crucial for infants and children to feel safe, loved, and supported by their caregivers.

- Childhood abuse, especially when perpetrated by someone trusted, damages the attachment bond and makes it difficult to regain a sense of safe attachment.
