Table of contents. Attachment theory in psychology originates with the seminal work of John Bowlby In the s John Bowlby worked as a psychiatrist in a Child Guidance Clinic in London, where he treated many emotionally disturbed children.
Specifically, it shaped his belief about the link between early infant separations with the mother and later maladjustment, and led Bowlby to formulate his attachment theory. Bowlby proposed that attachment can be understood within an evolutionary context in that the caregiver provides safety and security for the infant. This is illustrated in the work of Lorenz and Harlow Rudolph Schaffer and Peggy Emerson investigated if attachment develops through a series of stages, by studying 60 babies at monthly intervals for the first 18 months of life this is known as a longitudinal study.
The children were all studied in their own home, and a regular pattern was identified in the development of attachment. The babies were visited monthly for approximately one year, their interactions with their carers were observed, and carers were interviewed. A diary was kept by the mother to examine the evidence for the development of attachment. Three measures were recorded:. Very young infants are asocial in that many kinds of stimuli, both social and non-social, produce a favorable reaction, such as a smile.
Infants indiscriminately enjoy human company, and most babies respond equally to any caregiver. They get upset when an individual ceases to interact with them. From 3 months infants smile more at familiar faces and can be easily comfortable by a regular caregiver.
Special preference for a single attachment figure. The baby looks to particular people for security, comfort, and protection. It shows fear of strangers stranger fear and unhappiness when separated from a special person separation anxiety. Some babies show stranger fear and separation anxiety much more frequently and intensely than others, nevertheless, they are seen as evidence that the baby has formed an attachment.
This has usually developed by one year of age. Many of the babies from the Schaffer and Emerson study had multiple attachments by 10 months old, including attachments to mothers, fathers, grandparents, siblings and neighbours. The baby becomes increasingly independent and forms several attachments. By 18 months the majority of infants have formed multiple attachments.
The multiple attachments formed by most infants vary in their strength and importance to the infant. Attachments are often structured in a hierarchy, whereby an infant may have formed three attachments but one may be stronger than the other two, and one may be the weakest.
The results of the study indicated that attachments were most likely to form with those who responded accurately to the baby's signals, not the person they spent more time with. Schaffer and Emerson called this sensitive responsiveness. Intensely attached infants had mothers who responded quickly to their demands and, interacted with their child.
Infants who were weakly attached had mothers who failed to interact. The most important fact in forming attachments is not who feeds and changes the child but who plays and communicates with him or her. Therefore, sensitive responsiveness to the baby's signals, appeared to be the key to attachment.
The Schaffer and Emerson study has low population validity. The infants in the study all came from Glasgow and were mostly from working class families. In addition, the small sample size of 60 families reduces the strength of the conclusion we can draw from the study. However, accuracy of data collection by parents who were keeping daily diaries whilst clearly being very busy could be questioned.
A diary like this is also very unreliable with demand characteristics and social desirability being major issues. Mothers are not lkely to report negative experiences in their daily write up. The study lacks historical validity. It was conducted in the s when gender roles were different — Now, more men stay at home to look after their children and more women go out to work so the sample is biased.
Psychologists have proposed two main theories that are believed to be important in forming attachments. Once the neutral stimuli which in this context is the mother present while the child is eating is consistently associated with an unconditioned stimulus and will eventually produce the same response. The mother then becomes a learned conditioned stimulus and produces a conditioned response. This then results in the mother once seen by the infant gives the child a sense of pleasure which is a conditioned response.
Operant conditioning was first investigated by Skinner and then further investigated by Dollard and Miller in regard of attachment and drive reduction theory which describes something that motivates behavior.
This was then investigated as when an infant is hungry there is a drive to reduce the discomfort which happens as a result.
Once the child is fed this produces a feeling of pleasure which is positive reinforcement. Behavior which is rewarded by food is repeated and food becomes the primary reinforcer as it is associated with a reward and reinforces the behavior. The person supplying the food which can be the mother or primary caregiver becomes a secondary reinforcer as they become the source of the reward.
Conclusively, the attachment occurs because the child associates the person who supplies the food with rewards and seeks them. The evolutionary theory of attachment e.
The determinant of attachment is not food, but care and responsiveness. Bowlby suggested that a child would initially form only one primary attachment monotropy and that the attachment figure acted as a secure base for exploring the world.
The attachment relationship acts as a prototype for all future social relationships so disrupting it can have severe consequences. This theory also suggests that there is a critical period for developing an attachment about 0 -5 years. If an attachment has not developed during this period, then the child will suffer from irreversible developmental consequences, such as reduced intelligence and increased aggression.

Developmental Psychology Attachment Theory Attachment Theory Attachment Theory By Saul McLeod , updated Feb 05, Take-home Messages Attachment can be defined as a deep and enduring emotional bond between two people in which each seeks closeness and feels more secure when in the presence of the attachment figure.
Such behavior appears universal across cultures. Attachment theory explains how the parent-child relationship emerges and influences subsequent development. Attachments are most likely to form with those who responded accurately to the baby's signals, not the person they spent more time with.

Attachment theory is focused on the relationships and bonds between people, particularly long-term relationships, including those between a parent and child and between romantic partners. British psychologist John Bowlby was the first attachment theorist, describing attachment as a "lasting psychological connectedness between human beings. Some of the earliest behavioral theories suggested that attachment was simply a learned behavior. These theories proposed that attachment was merely the result of the feeding relationship between the child and the caregiver. Because the caregiver feeds the child and provides nourishment, the child becomes attached.
This premise undergirded their compelling work on instinctive behavior and the ontogeny of human attachment. Bowlby and his associates focused on disturbances and separations in the early relationships between young children and their primary caretakers, most often mothers or mother-surrogates. Whereas psychoanalytic theory at that time connected psychopathology more with child fantasy and the internal events or process of the child, Bowlby and his associates connected psychoneurosis and other forms of emotional disturbance in the child primarily with rather external events. Bowlby undertook training at the British Psychoanalytic Institute and received supervision from Melanie Klein. In her reconstruction of attachment theory, Inge Bretherton relays

- Я должен сделать проверку на наличие вируса. Чатрукьян знал: это первое, чего в любом случае потребует Стратмор. Выглянув в пустую шифровалку, он принял решение. На загрузку программы и поиск вируса уйдет минут пятнадцать. Скажи, что ничего нет, - прошептал. - Абсолютно. Скажи папе, что все в порядке.

Сьюзан шла следом за ним, размышляя, по-прежнему ли Хейл прячется в Третьем узле. Свет от монитора Стратмора отбрасывал на них жутковатую тень. Сьюзан старалась держаться поближе к шефу на небольшой платформе с металлическими поручнями. По мере того как они удалялись от двери, свет становился все более тусклым, и вскоре они оказались в полной темноте.
