Social releasers:
Sensitive Period:
Internal Working Model:
Continuity Hypothesis:
Social releasers: To ensure that the mother provides for the infant, the infant behaves in ways which encourage interaction. The infant expresses social releasers, such as smiling, cooing and crying. This is to get a response from the caregiver, which is important in the formation of an attachment.

Sensitive perioid:
Sensitive period is thought to be during the first 2 1/2 years of life, if an attachment is not formed by this time, it is not possible to form an attachment afterwards.

Internal working model: Mental representation provided by the infant’s experiences from early attachment with caregiver. IWM is the use of this relationship as a basis for future relationships. The model is used to determine how they will approach future relationships e.g. with their spouses and own children.

Continutity hypothesis: The continuity hypothesis is the theory that there is a link between the early attachment relationship and later relationships and personality/behaviour. e.g. Securely attached are expected to grow to be more socially competent and insecure to be more aggressive etc...the continuity hypothesis links with the internal working model.

Hope this helps..
