JONGENELEN, Ines; SOARES, Isabel; GROSSMANN, Karin  and  MARTINS, Carla. Attachment organization in adolescent mothers and their infants. Psicologia [online]. 2006, vol.20, n.1, pp.11-36. ISSN 0874-2049.

Within Bowlby’s attachment theory framework, an empirical research with forty adoles­cent mothers and their infants assessed during pregnancy and at 12th months post­partum is presented. Our results show no statistically significant pattern of inter­generational transmission of attachment from mother to infant, and a substantial number of infants classified as secure to the mother at 12 months of age.

Keywords : attachment; adolescent motherhood.
