Example text

Emotions are the essential regulatory factor in intersubjective contact, expressed emotions are fundamentally dialogic or between person. (Trevarthen and Aitkin 2001: 18) Intriguingly, as Fonagy and Target (1997) explain, the parent’s interest in their child’s mind and how it works, when shared with the child, plays a critical part in helping the growing infant develop a mind, an understanding of how it functions, and a strong sense of self, personal esteem and self-efficacy. As Winnicott (1971) observed, attuned mothers give ‘back to the baby the baby’s own self ’.

In the context of loving, reciprocal, mind-minded relationships other people’s behaviour becomes meaningful and predictable, not arbitrary and puzzling. ‘Reflective function’ gives children more behavioural effective and adaptive options in increasingly complex social situations (Fonagy and Target 1997). The ability to fire on all psychological cylinders feeds into children’s social understanding and emotional intelligence. It gives rise to good selfesteem and high self-efficacy. Children learn to regulate their own arousal, and by using their increasing social understanding and emotional skills, they can also regulate other people’s arousal.

They are keen to understand their child, and to be understood by their child. This offers the prospect of a coordinated and cooperative relationship. In empathic, sensitive parent–infant relationships, there is mutual coordination, a dance if you will, of gaze, voice, touch and bodily rhythms. Attuned parents help children feel understood and competent at making sense of and managing their own affect and arousal. Securely attached children are able to experience and express negative emotions. They also know that they have the capacity to regulate their distress, either by managing the upset themselves or by getting help from their attachment figure.
