Alan Sroufe Variations in attachment as an outcome of variations in care Her observations in Uganda led Ainsworth to propose that the critical aspect of care in the first year was the caregiver’s sensitive responsiveness to the infant. The sensitive caregiver is attuned to the infant, continually monitoring the infant and being alert to the infant’s signaled needs or desires. Such signals are interpreted accurately and responded to sufficiently promptly and thoroughly so that infant arousal is in general modulated.

Bowlby’s rationale suggests that the attachment behavioral control system is a product of the natural selection process in the lineage leading to human evolution, selected for the survival advantages it afforded to those infants and children who sought and maintained proximity and contact with their caregivers. Bowlby (1969/1982) further proposed that caregiver behavior is organized as a behavioral system that meshed with infant behavior to ensure protection and safety. As species-characteristic components of our evolutionary heritage, both infant and caregiver control systems are expected to show a predictable pattern and be observable in most members of the species as long as the environment they inhabit is within the range of environmental conditions in which those systems evolved.
