The Insecure/Ambivalent Pattern of Attachment: Theory and Research.
Cassidy, Jude; Berlin, Lisa J.
Child Development, v65 n4 p971-91 Aug 1994
Reviews research on infants classified by Ainsworth's "Strange Situation" assessment as insecure/ambivalent, and examines studies exploring attachment theory beyond infancy. Presents a theoretical discussion of the ways in which patterns of mother and child behaviors associated with the insecure/ambivalent pattern may work together to produce incompetent, overdependent children. Future research directions are also proposed. (MDM)
