Child development research featured on University site

attachment.jpgSince 1975, professors Byron Egeland and Alan Sroufe have traced the importance of childhood attachment. Their field-defining research, conducted along with professor Andrew Collins, is featured on the University of Minnesota home page.

Sroufe and Egeland have followed the same group of subjects for 35 years, from childhood through their adult family relationships. Now, Collins is researching how early attachments affect adult social relationships.

The article includes insights on how a responsive caregiver can influence confidence, social relationships--even IQ--for a lifetime.
