Clinical Implications of Attachment

By Jay Belsky; Teresa Nezworski | Go to book overview

In this regard, it must be recalled that our own motivation for inviting families to participate in our intervention program was as much dictated by ethical considerations as it was by scientific theoretical ones. In view of the fact that we had promised families that we would share any concerns with them and, in the face of emerging data linking insecurity with subsequent developmental difficulties, we felt obliged to raise the prospect of subsequent risk, and we really had little choice but to offer some service that we believed might reduce this risk. Even though we were unsure of the severity of the risk involved, we can conclude that there was sufficient pain and suffering in the participating families to indicate that our offer of help was not misguided. To the extent that we offered even some temporary relief, we feel confident that we did the right thing. Only more extensive and careful future research will determine, however, whether this approach to service delivery can be of long-term assistance to families rearing young children.
