Arnold J. Sameroff on Transactional Models - Dictionary of Arguments

Upton I 63
Transactional model/context/learning/development/Sameroff/Upton: Traditional attachment theory suggests that the carer’s behaviour, in particular their responsiveness to the child’s needs, is an important factor in the development of a good relationship. However, (…) the socio-cultural context of development, including expectalions and beliefs about behaviour, is also relevant. In addition, it is important to remember that relationships by definition involve more than one person and it is essential to ask what influence the child brings to the developing relationship.
, >Learning theory.
Sameroff (1991)(1) describes a transactional model of development in which the mutual effects that children and adults have on modifying each other’s behaviour is emphasised. In this model the dynamic interactions between child and social environment are seen to be at the heart of developmental progression.
>Dynamic Systems.
(…) the response of each individual to the other at a given time point fundamentally changes each individual’s future responses. In this way, patterns of interaction develop.
