Research in non-attachment

A Scale to Measure Nonattachment: A Buddhist Complement to Western Research on Attachment and Adaptive Functioning
BALJINDER KAUR SAHDRA, PHILLIP R. SHAVER, AND KIRK WARREN BROWN
Journal of Personality Assessment, 92(2), 116–127, 2010
The Buddhist notion of “nonattachment” (release from mental fixations) is related to but distinguishable from the Western construct of attachment.
Secure (or insecure) attachment is based on internal working models related to security (or insecurity), whereas nonattachment is based on insight
into the constructed and impermanent nature of mental representations. Based on historical and contemporary Buddhist scholarship, we designed
the Nonattachment Scale and evaluated its psychometric properties in various samples. We also present evidence consistent with Buddhist theory
that nonattachment is psychologically and socially adaptive, and we offer directions for further research on nonattachment.

sounds good! I find unbelievable that the western world simply doesn't consider that craving and anger may arise at pathalogical levels compared to other emotions like depression and anxiety.
