RIPOLL-NUNEZ, Karen  and  ARRIETA, Karen Martínez. Attachment representation of children with obesity and the sensitive response of their mothers. Summa psicol. UST (En línea) [online]. 2012, vol.9, n.2, pp. 57-67. ISSN 0718-0446.

In the present study relations were established among the mother sensitive response, the attachment and the infantile obesity. The design was of descriptive type - exploratory, a semistructured interview was used, the Child Attachment Interview and observation not participant. The results indicate that the children with obesity present an insecure attachment and the mother responds with a disconnection as opposed to the necessities of the child; the emission of responses of denial of the problem, carelessness, invalidation of the subjective experience and a lack of sensibility to detect the hunger and satiety of the child, it is related with the obesity. One concludes that the intervention in obesity must include the affective relation mother-son and one projects the possibility of prevention of the disorder.
