George, Carol
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v20 n5 p411-24 May 1996
This paper examines the role of internal working models in the development of parent-child relationships. Mental representations of child attachment, adult attachment, and parental caregiving are reviewed in light of adaptational deficits often associated with attachment insecurity. A reconceptualization of the link between insecurity and child abuse is described, highlighting disorganized attachment. (Author/PB)
