Sample text

One of the ongoing discussions in the theoretical literature relates to the nature of these proposed disorders and at what point an infant or child can be said to have an individual disorder that lies within the child, particularly when the origins of the problem can be identified in attachment relationships themselves. Also, there is no agreement about how attachment disorders relate to the classification of insecure attachment, given that insecure attachment occurs in ‘normal’ populations and is not seen as a disorder, while early disorganised attachment is more clearly linked to later psychopathology, with disruption of the developing capacity for emotional regulation, relationships and personality development.

Early experiences appear to have both direct and indirect long-term effects on development. Adverse early experiences, for example, may cause damage to some infant capacities if severe, but will also produce a greater vulnerability to stress as the infant matures. For example, severe stress in infancy will affect the developing stress-regulation mechanisms of the brain and hormonal systems, influencing the capacity to deal with and respond to stressful events throughout life (see Chapter 10). CURRENT MODELS OF EARLY DEVELOPMENT AND INTERVENTION Current accounts of early development describe the infant’s move towards self-regulation and self-organisation in the context of the relationship with the primary carer.
