Video: The Role of Attachment on Mental & Physical Health

Joseph Sparks

8th November 2016

This short, five-minute video, explores the history of attachment and the role of attachment on later mental and physical health outcomes. Dr Leslie Atkinson briefly explores why the process of attachment is important and what happens if the attachment bond does not form.

The role of attachment in infancy on later mental and physical health outcomes

I usually show this video as an introduction to the attachment topic. The video provides an interesting introduction while allowing students to consider the role of early childhood experiences on later adult health. The video also allows students to consider the nature-nurture debate and think about whether infants are ‘born to attach’ or ‘learn to attach’.
