Salient Attachment Relationships: Childhood to Adolescence

The researchers will deliver an integrative summary of current attachment theory research, emphasizing the shift in the most salient attachment figure as the child develops. Specifically, as children develop competencies, dependency on parents decreases, and children begin to rely on peers in middle childhood, and then later, on romantic partners to meet attachment needs. Case examples highlight attachment behaviors and interventions to be implemented in school and with families at each stage.
