Our personality begins to acquire a regular, enduring quality. We begin to expect certain things of ourselves and of others, while others feel that we are becoming more familiar and predictable to them. The defensive exclusion of information that is distressing, anxiety provoking or psychologically threatening interferes with the individual's ability to modify, refine and update their working model. Crucial to the formation of the internal working model is the quality of the social interaction between children and their selective attachment figures.
The effect of such synchrony is to create a kind of interpersonal scaffolding that helps children to locate and support their growing understanding of their own and other people's emotions, mental states, behaviours and interactional styles. The result of regularly experiencing such synchronised harmony is that children are able to access, acknowledge and integrate both their thoughts and the full range of their feelings. Cognition and affect support each other rather than exist in a state of conflict and confusion.
Self (low value, ineffective and dependent) + other people (neglecting, insensitive, unpredictable and unreliable)= ambivalent attachment patterns. 4. Self (confused and bad) + other people (frightening and unavailable) = disorganised attachment patterns. After the age of about 3 years, attachment evolves into a goalcorrected partnership. Ideally, children need to balance and integrate flexibly their own attachment needs with the plans and wants of their caregivers. There is an inbuilt developmental tension between parents and their toddlers: 'The toddler endeavours to explore, learn, and individuate; the parent strives to protect and socialize' (Lieberman 1992: 562).
