The Effect of the Infant on Its Caregiver. Volume 1 in the Origins of Behavior Series.
Lewis, Michael, Ed.; Rosenblum, Leonard A., Ed.
This book, the first in a series on development and behavior of human infants and animals, contains a collection of articles dealing with the significance of the interaction between mother and infant and the subtle contributions that each makes to the other in shaping their ongoing dyadic behavior. It emphasizes that the infant is no mere passive recipient of stimulation from those around him, and shows the impact of the infant as a source of information, regulation, and even the distortion of the caregiver's behavior.
