u04d1 Infant Attachment


Analyze how infant attachment
develops in terms of the parent-child relationship. What is the
potential impact of attachment on a child's later psychosocial
development?
In your answer, include the following:

  • Either: Refer to and integrate ideas presented in
    the text and supplemental information. Cite the textbook at least twice
    within your discussion.
  • Or: Cite at least one scholarly resource from the
    Capella library to support your discussion. Do not use Internet Web
    sites such as Wikipedia.
Follow APA style rules for citing references.
You will be evaluated on how well you can demonstrate that you
understand the ideas presented throughout the unit, including assigned
readings, discussions, media and independent research. You will also be
evaluated on the quality of your work—its academic rigor, how well it
shows your ability to think critically, and how completely it covers
the discussion topic. Refer to the Discussion Participation Scoring
Guide in the Resources below to learn how your discussions will be
evaluated.

Hello Class,

Attachment is defined as the emotional tie to a parent experienced by an infant, from which the child drives security (Boyd & Bee, 2009). The Parent / Child attachment is described as a developing mutual and interlocking pattern of attachment behaviors called Synchrony. The foundation for attachment comes into play within only days after birth. Bowlby suggests the four phases of the development of infant attachment in the stages described below:

Phase 1: Non-focused orienting and signaling ( Birth - 3 months ).
Phase 2: Focus on one or more figures ( 3 - 6 months ).
Phase 3: Secure base behavior ( 6 - 24 months ).
Phase 4: Internal model ( 24 months and beyond ).

The attachment quality of a parent and child also plays a role in the long term effect of a child's ability to bond later in life. Adolescence who were securely attached during infancy are said to have higher self esteem,are more social and have more intimate relationships then those who have insecure or avoidant attachments. The quality of attachment in infancy also predicts sociability through early, middle, and late adulthood (Van Lange, DeBruin, Otten, & Joireman, 1997).
