Bowlby’s Ethological Theory of Attachment
The father of attachment theory John Bowlby states that “Attachment is an integral part of human nature from the cradle to the grave” (Lifespanlearn, 2009). In John Bowlby’s ethological theory of attachment, attachment is seen as a strong connection to the caregiver as a way to promote survival of self, the species as a whole and competence. Berk 2010 details a four stage process from birth to 2 years in which infants develop this strong bond (Berk, 2010).
The first phase titled the preattacment phase is from the age range of birth to 6 weeks. In this initial phase, Bowlby points out that several things take place to bring babies into close

A01 – Description (4 marks)
Bowlby’s attachment theory states that attachment is adaptive and innate (genetic). Infants elicit care giving and become attached to those individuals who respond sensitively to their signals (social releasers). The relationship with the primary attachment figure (monotropy) acts like a framework for future adult relationships through the internal working model.
Bowlby stated that infants are born with innate social releasers, e.g. crying, smiling and cute faces (big eyes and large foreheads), which

(2006), “The challenge ahead involves understanding how child abuse can lead to violence and other psychological and physical abnormalities. The root lies in the effects of violence on the brain, particularly the developing brain of vulnerable children in the first two years of life. Attachment theory and research provide us with an important psychobiological framework for understanding how environmental experience can trigger both gene expression and developmental outcomes” (p. 5). Following early research done by Bowlby, Zulueta and her colleagues at the Maudsley Hospital have elicited the Traumatic Attachment Induction Test (TAIT) in response to traumatic attachment and the association with

(2) Bowlby developed “attachment theory.” As the child separates from her/his primary caregiver, she/he goes through several stages of separation anxiety, which are: (a) the protest stage; (b) despair; and (c) detachment. During this process children and their caregivers develop different attachment “styles” based on the nature and quality of their interactions. They are crucial determiners of the child’s subsequent psycho-social development. Based on research into mother-child dynamics Bowlby and his colleagues concluded there

six theories try to explain the source of child abuse. These theories use two main methods to explain child abuse the first one is adorning ones action, and the second one is copying ones behavior (Champe, 2012).
Research shows that children who are abused grow up to be abusive because of copying ones behavior and they grow with it into adulthood. Children who abused grow up to be criminals and end up in prisons. These theories try to explain how parents and children should relate in their families (Champe, 2012).
The first theory is the attachment theory it explains how children turn up to be in future as a result of the relationship they had with their guards. The bond

Chodorow’s theory followed the principle of socialist feminism. Chodoraw’s states that girls and boys are raised differently when it comes to the relationship with their mother. The mother-child relationships were not based on cultural aspects but influenced by social norms.

Psychodynamics is the systematic study and theory of the psychological forces that underline human behavior, emphasizing the interplay between unconscious and conscious motivation.
The original concept of "psychodynamics" was developed by Sigmund Freud. Freud suggested that psychological processes are flows of psychological energy in a complex brain, establishing "psychodynamics" on the basis of psychological energy, which he referred to as libido.
The psychodynamic psychotherapy is a less intensive form compared to classical psychoanalysis practiced by strict Freudians, demanding sessions only once weekly instead of 3-5 times weekly which was typical for traditional psychoanalysts

frightened and overawed him, and as animistic tendencies dominated his mind, he personified the forces of nature and sought to placate them by offering them worship and sacrifice. He thus peopled the world with gods. Later on, as man's mind developed, he found it necessary to rationalize his old attachment to them. The urge for unification led him to reduce the multiplicity of gods to one supreme deity. He formed an abstract idea of the Absolute and then, driven by unconscious emotional urges, objectified that idea. The God thus evolved is a subjective God. In the words of Sheen, "the only God attained by a purely affective approach is a subjective God born of one's own feelings."

In his poem Keeping Things Whole, Mark Strand writes “In a field / I am the absence of field. This is / always the case.

In practice, the religious life is often in conflict with other conceptions of the good life.
In the ancient world, Aristotle examined the different one-sided conceptions of the good life and rejected them in favor of a single conception with which most of us are probably in agreement—happiness.

The first approach is to treat loyalty as either actual purchase behavior or repeat purchase intentions. This approach has long been criticized for leading to spurious loyalty (Day, 1969) while the composite approach lacks theory (Jacoby and Chestnut, 1978). Customers may be loyal due to high switching barriers or lack of real alternatives. Customers may also be loyal because they are satisfied and thus want to continue the relationship.

Organizational commitment has long been studied in the management, organizational theory, and socialization literature. Organizational commitment can be defined as the state in which an employee identifies with a particular organization and its goals, and wishes to maintain membership in the specific organization (Robbins, 1998; Greenberg & Baron, 1997). In other wards in organizational context, it is the level of commitment that workers feel for their organizations is closely linked to their attitudes and behavior within the workplace (Hislop, 2002).

However, with today’s media rich environment each of the 65 children in their sample could identify a character they really liked. Children reported a high degree of emulation of their chosen character and even stronger desire to be friends with the character (p. 18).”

What needs to be done first is make sure that there are NO errors. This means in spelling, punctuation, price, and grammar. These should be thoroughly, and constantly, edited.

Along with tobacco use and poor nutrition, lack of exercise is one of the main issues that people have which leads to high blood pressure, obesity, and other serious health problems.

Homelessness in America is a social problem that we are faced with on a daily basis. Despite the vast number of research done by Americans on homelessness, little is still known about the effect that it has on our society. The overall image that emerges from the effects of homeless people is negative: they’re seen as lazy, drug users, alcoholics, and worthless.

Unfreeze, Change, Freeze
Kurt Lewin proposed a three stage theory of change commonly referred to as Unfreeze, Change, Freeze (or Refreeze). It is possible to take these stages to quite complicated levels but I don't believe this is necessary to be able to work with the theory. But be aware that the theory has been criticised for being too simplistic.
A lot has changed since the theory was originally presented in 1947, but the Kurt Lewin model is still extremely relevant. Many other more modern change models are actually based on the Kurt Lewin model.

Personal Experience with Language
Language is a big part of my everyday life. I hear different languages being spoken in many places. I experience a different kind of language the most at the nail salon. Language has a big effect on everyone, in my opinion every time I walk into the nail salon I hear someone talking in a different kind of language. I have no idea what they are saying, but I find it very impressive that most of them can speak English and their language, Vietnamese.
As soon as I walk into the nail salon I always hear them talking to one another in their own language. I am sometimes very curious as to what they are saying. For example, they will carry on a conversation with
