AS Psychology: Explanations of Attachments & More Revision Grids

Combination of explanations of attachments, cultural variations and Mary Ainsworth's 'Strange Situation' all compiled together, did not separate them out before - apologies.

Grids chunk the information to make it easier to digest and understand, a good revision tool to use on your own revising or with a peer who can ask specific areas for you to recall, a refreshing exercise which makes you more active.

Hope they are useful.
