The Role of Pre-Birth Parent Characteristics in Early Family Development.
Heinicke, Christoph M.
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v8 n2 p169-81 1984
Descriptions of the development of three families show the specific impact of pre-birth parental characteristics on the quality of the parent-infant transaction of infant soothability-responsiveness to need. As well as linking the parent's responsiveness to the infant, to the emergence and resolution of ambivalent feelings about caring for the infant. (Author/DB)
