  • Criticisms of research on cultural variations in attachment
    • Culture bias
      • Rothbaum et al (2000):argued that attachment theory+research is not relevant to other countries
      • Rothbaum suggests that psychologists should produce a set of explanations rooted in individ. cultures.
    • Posada+Jacobs: a lot of evidence that supports the universality of attachment
    • Prior and Glaser conclude that expressions of maternal sensitivity and manifestations of secure-base behaviour may vary across cultures bur the core concepts are universal
      • Nature VS Culture: IJzendoorn+Kroonenberg study found more variations within cultures than between cultures
    • Van IJzendoorn+Kroonenberg- Cultural similarities might be due to the effects of mass media and not due innate biological influences
