Flashcards in ATTACHMENT Deck (12)
What is reciprocity?

How is reciprocity important in care-give interactions?
Brazleston proposed that this basically rhythm is an important precursor to later communications.

What’s the problem with international synchrony?
Jean Piaget proposed that the behaviour is pseudo-imitation and is repeating the behaviour to be rewarded (operant conditioning.)
What is the evaluation for Piaget’s interpretation of interactional synchrony?
DeYoung observed infant behaviour when interacting with two objects. Infants made little to no response to the action. They concluded that this shows that infants do not imitate everything they see.
What is the evaluation for care-giver interactions?
Individual differences- more strongly attached infant caregiver pairs showed greater interactional synchrony.
