  • Cultural Variations in attachment
    • Van Ijzendoorn and Kroonenberg did a meta analysis of the strange situation in 8 countries. Secure attachment was most common, then avoidant (except israel and Japan) then resistant
      • This supports bowlby that attachment is innate however can we generalise these findings to the whole world?
    • attachment theories only relevant to western culture?
      • Rothbaum et al 2000-attachment research is too firmly rooted in western culture to be applicable elsewhere (IMPOSED ETICS)
      • Van ijzendoorn and sagi found attachment similar to western culture in urban tokyo
      • Attachment  similar because of global culture but appear different as research is being done in different sub cultures
