Attachment And Neglect - Instrumental Role Experiences For Child


  • Cristian PETRE

    (Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences, Ovidius University of Constanta, Romania)


The authentic and hidden intention of the essay is to offer some useful „keys” for a theoretical approach to the phenomenon of attachment, cues which invite to a dynamical, volatile and transdisciplinar reading exercise. The informational axis has three key elements: attachment, security and negligence. The approach is mixed, providing a complex „vision”: educational sciences, social work, psychology and psychiatry. The central idea of the article is: attachment is both a primary emotional bond between the child and parent-mother, but above all, is an existential instrumentation for the quality of any future relationship with himself and with others. The consequences of the attachment’s management is a prerequisite not only for the child's sense of security as well as for the quality of superego's and for world and his own life conception. Investigative tool is the the hermeneutical discourse, whose main role is to decrypt the possible options and alternatives to the meaning of messages subject to reflection. The theoretical study, but argued with statistics, activates the attachment and neglect understanding versions, providing openings for practitioners in children’s behaviors management.
