Demonstrate your knowledge of child development by analyzing the relationship between attachment style, as outlined by Mary Ainsworth, and any one of the other topics covered in the discussions or journals in this course. Consider ways in which that topic may influence the development of attachment in childhood or adolescence. Additionally, address how one’s attachment style may impact their behavior or choices related to that topic. Finally, explain how exploring the interaction between unique features of development (such as attachment and health, or attachment and bullying) can help us in our continued learning of human development across the lifespan.
Prior to completing this discussion, please read Module 13 in the textbook, including the interactive media tools on theories of attachment, and review any relevant Instructor Guidance.
