Perceptions of Attachment Behavior: A Comparison of Anglo and Puerto Rican Mothers.
Harwood, Robin L.; Miller, Joan G.
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v37 n4 p583-601 Oct 1991
Examined middle and lower class Anglo-American and Puerto Rican mothers' sociocultural values and perceptions of attachment behavior. Anglo mothers focused on self-confidence, independence, and autonomy, whereas Puerto Rican mothers focused on obedience, relatedness, and demeanor. Findings indicate the need for culturally sensitive models of the meaning and predictive significance of attachment behavior. (GLR)
