Psicologia: ciência e profissão
versão impressa ISSN 1414-9893
From a follow-up of 0-12 months old children through home visits, a scheme of analysis is proposed in which the concepts of attachment and autonomy, relative to the mother-child relationship, are linked to the concepts of place and space, relative to the organization of the home environment; both understood as the expression of a developmental system including the basic psychobiological organization of the mother-child dyad and the belief systems and the concrete living conditions within which development takes place. A typology is proposed - rigid; flexible; instable; symbiotic - associating the way of living to the way of caring.
