John Bowlby’sTheory of Attachment
  • Primarily the seeking of proximity to an attachment figure in stressful situations.
  • Infants become attached to adults who are sensitive and responsive in social interactions with them
  • Children use attachment figures (familiar people) as a secure base to explore from and return to.
  • Parental responses lead to the development of patterns of attachment; these, in turn, lead to internal working models which will guide the individual's feelings, thoughts and expectations in later relationships.
