SELF-THEORY, INTERNAL WORKING MODELS AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF NARRATIVES: WHY YOUNG CHILDREN CREATE AND HOLD ON TO THEIR STORIES

  • Haggerty Center 715 E. Front Street Traverse City, MI 49686 United States (map)

Course Description:

Since Bowlby proposed the notion that babies—attentive to their environments, and eager to survive—developed internal working models of self and self-with-other, we have discovered affirmations of his ideas in psychotherapy with adults, in neurological research, and in attachment studies.  The nomenclature varies, but the ideas remain remarkably consistent:  We pay attention when we’re young, and we work out mental schema to explain what we perceive.  The implications of these schema for future behavior and ideas-about-self are enormous.
