From the Paper:

"Multiple psychologists seem to agree that the behavior of the child is central to behavior of the adult that child will eventually become. Some psychologists, such as Sigmund Freud and Erik Erikson, spent much of their life publishing theories relating to the importance of childhood development upon adult development. As such, one key issue stems from infant attachment styles--either secure, insecure or basically devoid of any attachment at all. One article which addresses infant attachment styles with adults, entitled "A look at the attachment process," written by Janet Gonzalez-Mena, posits that it is central to positive growth in the child that they form secure attachments with responsive adults in their early existence. Gonzalez-Mena opens her article with an explanation of how infants, while getting their needs met (food, warmth, etc), create a relationship with the adults around them."
