Attachment and holistic development

The development of a secure attachment relationship is a cruicial part of early development. Through careful observation of early relationships all other areas of development are observed as well. This film shows baby Orson as he develops through his first twelve months. Starting with a sequence filmed just after birth, there is a sequence for every month of this first year and sometimes more than one. The sequences all involve interactions with others (clips with dad as well as mum). They have been chosen, so that as well as showing general development, they also show some aspect relevant to the attachment process. These sequences can be used to observe the main shifts in skills and abilities - physical, social and cognitive - common to babies in their first year. They can also be used to observe how attachments are formed. Through careful observation, the important components that are essential to building a secure attachment become clear. This video includes the following sequences: Feeding: newborn, Attunement: 2 weeks, Dads: 1 month, Crying: 2. 5 months, Early conversations: 2. 5 months, Baby massage: 3 months, Tummy time: 4 months, Interest in objects: 5 months, Mirroring: 5 months, Singing games: 6 months, Peek-a-boo: 6 months, Stranger anxiety: 7 months, Independent feeding: 8 months, Object permanence: 9 months, Playing together: 9 months, Stranger anxiety: 10 months, Staying close: 11 months, Social referencing: 11 months, Playing and exploring: 12 months.
