Ainsworth

Observed the quality of attachments between infants and primary caregivers using a controlled observation

Made notes including:

  • seperation anxiety - how the child responded to the parent leaving the room (crying, looking for parent, continue to play etc)
  • infants willingness to explore - amount the child moved around the room playing with different toys
  • stranger anxiety - child's response to stranger (shyness, upset, not bothered)
  • reunion
