Child Abuse and Neglect in Infancy: Sources of Hostility within the Parent-Infant Dyad and Disorders of Attachment in Infancy.
Call, Justin D.
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v8 n2 p185-202 1984
The meaning of ordinary distress signals is, in instances of child abuse and neglect, determined by an unconscious mythology which the parent has about the infant, and also by what the parent finds unacceptable in oneself and project onto the infant. The recent research on mother-infant attachment is reviewed. (Author/DB)
