2005). MIND-MINDEDNESS: A FURTHER ASPECT OF MATERNAL SENSITIVE RESPONSIVENESS There has been a further development in the understanding of the mother’s sensitivity to her child, which Meins (1997) has termed mind-mindedness. This 44 Understanding Attachment and Attachment Disorders concept captures the sensitivity to the child’s mental state and the ability to ‘read’ it. In a prospective study of 65 mother–infant dyads (33 boys and 32 girls all aged 6 months), recruited from local health centres and baby clinics, maternal sensitivity was measured using the Ainsworth et al.

The association between parental state of mind with regard to attachment and the pattern of attachment in the child of that parent has been found in many subsequent studies. In a meta-analysis, van IJzendoorn (1995) found that, based on data from 13 samples (n=661), the correspondence between three-way infant and parental attachment classifications (infant secure/parent autonomous; infant insecure-avoidant/parent dismissing; infant insecure-resistant/ parent preoccupied) was 70 per cent. The correspondence between four-way classifications (including infant disorganised/disoriented and parent unresolved/disorganised), based on nine studies, was 63 per cent.

Indeed, the authors suggest that the relative weakness of predictability for the father may have been partly attributable to the relatively restricted range of classifications (22 of the 33 father–child dyads were rated as secure in infancy, compared with 12 of the 32 mother–child dyads). 5 The exact number appears not to be stated. 6 As Green and Goldwyn (2002) point out, two studies have shown an association between infant disorganisation and severe or chronic maternal depression or bipolar disorder.
