The "Packaging" of Maternal Stimulation in Relation to Infant Facial-Visual Engagement: A Case Study at Four Months.
Beebe, Beatrice; Gerstman, Louis J.
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v26 n4 p321-39 Oct 1980
It is generally assumed, but infrequently documented, that naturally-occurring maternal "packages" of stimulation make a functional difference in the organization of the infant's concurrent social behavior. This study aims to document that these maternal kinesic-rhythmic-facial packages have functional significance for an infant's facial-visual engagement during social play. (Author/RH)
