Disorganized attachment and reproductive strategies
journal contributionposted on 2009-02-01, 00:00 authored by Andrew Lewis, Gregory Tooley
Del Giudice provides an extension of the life history theory of attachment that incorporates emerging data suggestive of sex differences in avoidant male and preoccupied female attachment patterns emerging in middle childhood. This commentary considers the place of disorganized attachment within this theory and why male children may be more prone to disorganized attachment by drawing on Trivers’s parental investment theory.
