A Level Psychology

Psychology teacher Rachael Smith brought her five month old twins, Alex and Joseph, in to school on Wednesday morning so that the A level Psychology students could link their learning on the topic of attachment with real life babies.  The students observed how the babies behaved and were able to guess their age from what they have learned about the stages of attachment.  They also had a lot of fun interacting with the babies and seeing theory in action – the babies showed reciprocity and interactional synchrony (baby communication) and lots of lovely cute behaviours that the students know as ‘social releasers’ (basically, ways of getting the attention of adults so that the adults take care of them).
