Lecture Outline – Lecture 8: Attachments, Dads, and Preschool Thought Caregiving Factors Predicdting Secure Attachment: Prompt response to infant signals Expression of positive emotion and affection Tender and careful handling. Caregiving Factors Predicting Insecure Attachment General Factors: o Caregiver who dislikes physical contact. o Handling infant awkwardly/ harshly. o Behaving insensitively when meeting infant’s needs o Interacting in an angry or irritable manner. Maternal correlates of specific attachment classifications o Avoidant – over stimulating, intrusive care o Resistant – inconsistent care, unpredictable o Disorganized/disoriented – mother’s tend to have experienced loss or have severe adjustment difficulties (e.g. history of parental depression). Often abusive and neglectful. What about Dads ? Infant-Father Attachment Why look at this seperately? Origins may lie in different types of interactions. o Father’s spend less time with the infants. o Father’s spend more time in playful interaction – Dad’s as playmates. Is the strange situation the best assessment technique? Is there a spillover effect from mom? Attachment classifications for each dyad are independent and are a result of the particular interactional history.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
