Ainsworth (1967) Ugandan Strange Situation study
  • 28 unweaned babies were observed every 2 weeks for 2 hours at a time for 9 months.
  • Ainsworth used an interpreter as well as various rating scales to measure maternal sensitivity.
  • The strange situation was observed and interviews were conducted.

Categorization of children correlated significantly with ratings of mother’s sensitivity:

Avoidant- Child appears indifferent when mother leaves and avoids mother when she comes back.

Securely attached-Child is upset when mother leaves and is happy to see her again.

Ambivalent- Child is upset when mother leaves, and when mother comes back the child seeks comfort but also rejects it.
