Avoidance Behavior, Attachment and Motivational Conflict.
Richer, John
Early Child Development and Care, v96 p7-18 1993
An ethological or behavioral approach views childhood emotional outbursts as conflict between avoidance and attachment behavior on the part of the child. The classification of the level of motivation may produce a more useful diagnosis than standard psychiatric categories of behavior. This approach can also be applied to children diagnosed as having attention deficit disorder with hyperactivity or autism. (MDM)
