Bowlby's theory of attachment evaluation

HideShow resource information
Harlow
Harlow supports Bowlby because he found that when given the choice rhesus monkeys would choose a cloth mother for comfort rather than a wire mother for food. Therefore, attachment is for comfort and security not just to satisfy physiological needs

Lorenz
Lorenz supports Bowlby because he found that baby geese imprinted on him straight after they hatched and preceeded to follow him around. Therefore, supporting the idea of a critical period for attachment to be formed in
2 of 6
Brazelton
Brazelton supports Bowlby because he found that mothers and babies imitated eachothers movements and took turns to initiate another movement. Therefore supporting the idea interactional synchrony occurs between mother and baby to create an attachment
3 of 6
Rutter
Rutter refutes Bowlby because he found that attachment can be seen in a variety of attachment figures not only the mother. Therefore, refuting the idea of a monotropy attachment with only the mother
4 of 6
Schaffer & Emerson
They refute Bowlby because they found that whilst not all of the child's attachments are of equal strength, multiple attachments seem to be the rule rather than the exception. Therefore refuting the idea of a monotropy attachment

Fonagy
supports internal working model because he found that women who were insecurely attached had babies that were also insecurely attached. Therefore showing that how you were attached as a child affects how you go on to create attachments in the future.
