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.

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 practice, the religious life is often in conflict with other conceptions of the good life.

This approach has long been criticized for leading to spurious loyalty (Day, 1969) while the composite approach lacks theory (Jacoby and Chestnut, 1978).

The role of sport in society has been debated for many decades. Sport is a part of society as both an educational fixture and an entertainment enterprise. Sport forms part of human and social development; it can contribute to social cohesion, tolerance and integration and is an effective channel for physical and socio-economic development. As a universal language, sport can be a powerful medium for social and economic change: it can be utilized to bridge cultural gaps, resolve conflict and educate people in ways that very few activities can. The goal of the Sports Council is to examine the proposition that sport can be a powerful agent

What is Honor?
My understanding of the term honor.
Honor is defined as a source of credit or distinction, and is associated with reverence, dignity, reputation, good name and a good sense of what is morally correct. The key part to honor is having respect for others and for you; the two must act together because without both, there is nothing. I strongly believe that reputation is hard to gain and easily lost. Think about this, every day thousands of planes fly somewhere and there is never any news about a successful landing, but if any of those flights crash, it is all over the news.

A wise man once said ‘’ Action and reaction, ebb and flow, trial and error, change - this is the rhythm of living. Out of our over-confidence, fear; out of our fear, clearer vision, and fresh hope. And out of hope, progress.’’ It tells the story of Chris Mburu, a child from Kenya, and how his life was changed by a woman named Hilde Beck. Hilde Beck is an 87 year old survivor of the holocaust her parents were killed in concentration camps and she left Germany to Sweden to have a better life. She became a teacher only making a little over minimum wage but yet still gave some money out of her own pockets to sponsor a child and that child’s name was Chris
