Suggested Responses: Students should describe the process by which attachment occurs, with an emphasis on infant and parent attachment behaviors. The role of parental warmth and responsiveness should be emphasized. Students should describe the strange situation procedure and explain that researchers used this procedure to identify several types of attachment: Secure, insecure/ ambivalent, insecure/avoidant and disorganized. Students should explain that considerable cultural differences in attachment behaviors exist, and that the strange situation scenario and this classic understanding of attachment were not developed with other cultures in mind. What may look like insecure attachment in the strange situation scenario may simply reflect differences in parenting styles and behavioral expectations across cultures.
