RAMIRES, Vera Regina Röhnelt. Social cognition and attachment theory: some approximations. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2003, vol.16, n.2, pp. 403-410. ISSN 1678-7153. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-79722003000200020.
This paper discusses the possible approximation of concepts of attachment theory and social cognition. Key-concepts of both theories are presented, aiming to analyse their interfaces. That approximation could create a new conceptual field, which demands research and theoretical construction, and has implications to the understanding of child development, for both clinical psychology and the construction of knowledge.
