Infant Attachment to Mother and Child Caretaker in an East African Community.
Kermoian, Rosanne; Leiderman, P. Herbert
International Journal of Behavioral Development, v9 n4 p455-69 Dec 1986
A separation-reunion paradigm and Ainsworth classification procedures were used to assess security of attachment of Kenyan Gusii infants to mothers and caretakers. Correlates of attachment security were specific to mothers and caretakers, suggesting that the association between security of attachment and infant functioning in American studies reflects diversity of mother-infant activities.
