  • -0.2 P004 New Perspectives on Practice: The Great Attachment Debate в†’ P004, Attachment, Session 2, Jerome Kagan 04.12.2011 13:49

    It was validating to hear your thoughts that early attachment is not fixated, but can be repaired or mitigated by later experiences. This supports my experience of clients' ability to be resilient in the face of adversity in early childhood. Also provocative were the ideas influences of class and temperament on adaptability. As the grandmother of six grandchildren, I witness up close the variances of temperament in how those children navigate life; all with secure attachments and born to educated, middle class parents. Interesting!
