Mother-Infant Interaction at Home and in the Laboratory: The Effectof Context by Jay Belsky( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To assess the effect of setting on mother-infant interaction, 24 twelve-month-old children and their middle class mothers were observed on two occasions, a week apart. Half of these dyads were seen twice at home under naturalistic conditions or twice in the lab in a free play situation. The remaining 12 pairs were observed once in each location (order counterbalanced). General level of maternal functioning, but not infant functioning, was greatly affected by setting; mothers attended to, talked to, responded to and stimulated their children more frequently in the lab than at home. In addition, a change in setting tended to disrupt the individual differences in maternal rates of responsiveness observed consistently within a given setting. These results are discussed in terms of the differential demands placed upon mothers in each setting and their tendencies to behave in a more socially desirable manner in the lab. Individual differences in infant behaviors (E.G., vocalization, cry, smile) were more stable across settings than within settings, suggesting that infants were responding consistently to the strangeness inherent within each observational context. The total corpus of results is discussed in terms of the generalizability of laboratory findings to real world settings. (Author/MS)
The Interrelation of Parenting, Spousal Interaction and InfantCompetence: A Suggestive Analysis by Jay Belsky( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper argues that researchers should not investigate child development simply through studies of the child alone or mother-infant interactions, but rather through studies of the family as a system. Data is reported which seem to support this view. A review of recent literature indicates that an adequate account of child development requires an interdisciplinary effort involving family sociology and developmental psychology. A conceptual model is proposed in which there are reciprocal interrelations between the child's development, parental behaviors, and husband-wife interactions. Data drawn from a previously published study appear to support this model with respect to interrelations (1) between paternal (and maternal to a lesser degree) parental behaviors and husband-wife interactions, (2) between parental behavior and infant exploratory competence and (3) between infant competence and husband-wife interactions. Further research about these interrelations as they change over time is recommended. (Bh)

Child Abuse: From Research to Remediation by Jay Belsky( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reviewed is research on the etiology and treatment of child abuse, specifically on three basic theoretical models: a psychiatric model emphasizing the individual abuser's role; a sociological model stressing the impact of social factors; and a model which focuses on the child's role in stimulating his own maltreatment. The second part of the paper critically examines remediation strategies within each model (including self help groups, homemaker services, and changes in treatment of premature infants). The importance of considering all three models in devising treatment strategies is stressed. (Cl)
