This 4-credit lower level course examines current knowledge about attachment from infancy to adolescence, developmentally and behaviorally. The scope and contexts of attachments, particularly as they arise from early attachment experiences, will be grounded firmly in attachment theory and research findings relevant to historical, cultural, familial, personal and age-related contexts. The effects of attachment on human functioning, including brain development and the consequences of negative early experiences will be addressed. This base of understanding sets the groundwork for attachment in both personal and professional early childhood settings, including family relationships (sibling, parent, grandparent) and relationships beyond the family (friends, caregivers). This course meets the requirements for the Infant Toddler Care Credential. In addition, it is useful for students, particularly those from any of the social sciences, seeking a more personal understanding of the foundations of human emotional attachment. Level of Study: Introductory.
Important Note: This course was renamed effective the September 2011 term and was formerly offered as Attachment: Continuity and Separation: Introductory.
