The Role of Distal and Proximal Interaction in Infant Social Preference Formation
Roedell, Wendy Conklin; Slaby, Ronald G.
Developmental Psychology, 13, 3, 266-273, May 77
Experimental social histories were created for 22 6-month-old infants by providing structured interactions with three different adults (a distal interactor, a proximal interactor, and a neutral interactor) over a three-week period. Infants' social preferences (looking and approaching) for each of the interactors were then compared. (Author/JMB)
