Perceived Social Support Mediates between Prior Attachment and Subsequent Adjustment: A Study of Urban African American Children.
Anan, Ruth McLeister; Barnett, Douglas
Developmental Psychology, v35 n5 p1210-22 Sep 1999
Examined processes whereby attachment and other factors contribute to social/emotional adjustment among African-American children. Found that attachment assessed at 4.5 years uniquely predicted perceived social support two years later. Insecure attachment predicted self-reported behavior problems and parental report of internalizing problems. Perceived social support was associated positively with viewing ambiguously depicted actions as prosocial rather than aggressive. (Author/KB)
