The DVD “Strange Situation” as developed by Mary Ainsworth

Secure and insecure attachment patterns of toddlers and their mothers.
The DVD is about the various types of attachment behavior seen in toddlers and about the Strange Situation, the observtional instrument used to assess that behavior.

According to John Bowlby, the founder of attachment theory, attachment is a fundamental, innate behavior that developed over the course of evolution because it ensured the survival of human offspring. According to that theory, infants are genetically primed to form attachments with one or a few specific persons who provide protection and care, and who are able to recognize and satisfy their needs. Without at least one attachment figure, an infant would be lost and unable to survive.


The Strange Situation shown in this DVD was developed by the attachment researcher Mary Ainsworth based on many years of observation. Ainsworth worked closely with John Bowlby, the founder of attachment theory.

The DVD introduces the various attachment classifications of toddlers and their mothers: 
5 Strange Situations with securely attached toddlers (type B), 
one of which is unshortened | 2 Strange Situations with insecurely-avoidantly attached toddlers (type A), one of which is unshortened | 1 Strange Situation with an insecurely-ambivalently attached toddler (type C)

All of the Strange Situations are accompanied by an original narration in German by PD Dr. med. Karl Heinz Brisch along with an English translation. Other film clips on the DVD contain an introduction, an explanation of the Strange Situation, and an overview of the classification of attachment types, narrated by Dr. Brisch. The texts used in these films may be printed from the DVD-ROM.

Enthusiastic feedback about the DVD from an author:

I finally had a chance to look at the Babywatching DVD around Christmas, and I think it's great! Hannah looked at it with me, and for all of her 6 years, she was interested too. Sweet, how the children talk... and the amazement on their faces. I also thought the interviews were fascinating -how the facilitators and the mothers perceived the sessions. Congratulations on this most informative DVD!
