BCD404 - Attachment Across the Lifespan

Theories of attachment focus on the nature of social and emotional adult-child relationships and how they develop. Literature on attachment enables students to examine how attachment affects development, what effect caregiving (both in home and out of home) has on attachment and how early attachments affect relationships in later life. Observations in diverse settings will enable students to identify and describe behaviours associated with different patterns of attachment. Students will examine how attachment can be nurtured and optimized between caregiver and child. In addition, an examination of the criticisms of attachment theory will be scrutinized and alternate relational constructs discussed.
