    He states that attachment is biologically predetermined and that a child should receive the continuous care of the primary caregiver for 2 years so that the attachment can act as a template for future relationships. If the attachment is broken during these 2 years (the critical period) then this will have long term consequences like depression and reduced intelligence

    A - Adaptive - We have adapted to attach to our caregivers so that we can survive and in turn, our caregivers attach to us to promote the survival of their genes.

    S - Social Releasers - The cute noises/attention seeking behaviour that babies make to encourage adults to respond to their needs (and thus promotes survival)

    C - Critical Period - Must develop an attachment within a specific timeframe otherwise there can be developmental consequences.

    M - Monotropy - We have one unique attachment with our caregiver with all other attachments in a hierarchy beneath.

    I - Internal Working Model - This one unique attachment create a template for all future relationships (intimate and friends)

    My teacher uses that but just says Askme which is so confusing to remember which letters aren’t the same AND what they mean! I will definitely remember your version!
