Infant Development pdf free download. The frame of reference of the behavioral sciences, including psychiatry, is increasingly expanding to include psycho-historical and intergenerational considerations, especially with the realization that the needs of the child, youth, and adult are, to a large degree, mutually interdependent—each group having needed to confirm and be confirmed by the other. We mean to emphasize in our discussion of infancy—approximately the first fifteen months of life—the reciprocal relatedness between child and caretaker, whether the caretaker is parent, professional, or extended family. With new possibilities in societal and childrearing structures (the daycare center, the kibbutz, the commune), it is more important than ever to understand the nature of the infant and his dependency on his caretakers, even if the child were to be conceived in a test tube. For practical purposes, we will assume that the family—or a variant thereof—is still viable and still a rather universal matrix in which children are reared, notwithstanding the influences of other institutions.
