Preschool Children`s Representation of Attachment : Associations with Teacher - Child Relationship and Social Competence
Jin Sook Lee,Bok Hee Cho
In this study, children`s representation of attachment was assessed by the Attachment Story Completion Task(Bretherton, Ridgeway, & Cassidy, 1990) administered to 101 5-to 6-year-old children(56boys, 45girls). Teacher-child relationship and social competence were evaluated by a questionnaire administered to preschool teachers. Based on the children`s representation of attachment in their narrative responses to the story stems, 56.4% of the children were classified as having secure, 22.8% as insecure-avoidant, and 20.8% as insecure-disorganized attachments. Children with secure representation of attachment exhibited more social competence and fewer behavioral problems in the child-care setting than children with insecure representation of attachment. This study showed that the child`s internal model of attachment formed from experience with caregiver is capable of transmitting social relationships outside the home.
