Application of the Strange Situation Attachment Paradigm to a Neurologically Impaired Population.
Stahlecker, James E.; Cohen, Marlene Cresci
Child Development, v56 n2 p502-07 Apr 1985
Examines 24 mother/impaired infant dyads to study the quality of interaction using the Ainsworth-Wittig attachment paradigm. Measures of general development and degree of child impairment significantly differentiated "classifiability" of attachment in the Ainsworth scheme. Infants rated higher on a social responsiveness measure were more likely to possess secure attachments than those receiving lower ratings on it. (Author/AS)
