Finally, Phil Shaver provides an integrative overview of the conceptual territory, with its current mysteries, controversies, and opportunities for further research and theory development. CONCLUDING REMARKS This book makes clear that Bowlby’s behavioral system perspective and its use by romantic attachment researchers have been very fruitful over the past 20 years. I hope the ideas and findings presented in this book will stimulate other scholars to apply a behavioral system perspective to the study of love and that future research will be directed at the normative and individualdifference aspects of other behavioral systems discussed or hinted at by Bowlby, such as exploration, affiliation, and aggression/dominance.

These worries about self and relationship partners can keep the attachment system in a continually activated state, cause a person’s mind to be preoccupied with threats and the need for protection, and drastically interfere with the functioning of other behavioral systems. Negative attachment interactions indicate that the primary attachment strategy, proximity and support seeking, is failing to accomplish its set goal. As a result, the operating parameters of the attachment system have to be adjusted, and certain secondary attachment strategies are likely to be adopted.
