Continuity and Discontinuity of Attachment from Infancy through Adolescence.
Hamilton, Claire E.
Child Development, v71 n3 p690-94 May-Jun 2000
Examined relations between infant security of attachment, negative life events, and adolescent attachment classification in sample from the Family Lifestyles Project. Found that stability of attachment classification was 77 percent. Infant attachment classification predicted adolescent attachment classification. Found no differences between adolescents reared in conventional or nonconventional families in distribution of attachment security, negative life events, or attachment continuity. (Author/KB)
