Attachment Theory and the Teacher-Student Relationship

release date: Sep 13, 2010
Attachment Theory and the Teacher-Student Relationship
How teachers form and maintain classroom and staffroom relationships is crucial to the success of their work. A teacher who is able to accurately interpret the underlying relationship processes can learn to proactively, rather than reactively, influence the dynamics of any class. These are skills that can be taught. This invaluable text explains how adult attachment theory offers new ways to examine professional teaching relationships, classroom management and collegial harmony: equally important information for school leaders, teacher mentors and proteges. Attachment Theory and the Teacher-Student Relationship addresses three significant gaps in the current literature on classroom management: the effects of teachers’ attachment style on the formation and maintenance of classroom and staffroom relationships the importance of attachment processes in scaffolding teachers’ and students emotional responses to daily educational tasks the degree of influence these factors have on teachers’ classroom behaviour, particularly management of student behaviour. Based on recent developments in adult attachment theory, this book highlights the key aspects of teacher-student relationships that teachers and teacher educators should know. As such, it will be of great interest to educational researchers, teacher educators, students and training teachers.

Attachment Perspectives on Classroom Relationships

release date: Jan 01, 2012
Attachment Perspectives on Classroom Relationships
Aims: Recent research showing complex interactions between personality, experience, expectancies, values and career choice indicate that a prospective psychodynamic approach, via attachment theory, may yield important complementary motivational information. In this study, an unconscious need for a corrective emotional experience (CEE) driving the choice to teach was investigated. It was hypothesised that insecure attachment style predicts: (a) motivation to teach, (b) the search for CEE, and (c) anger at students and staff. Method: Data were obtained from 514 (68.5%) pre-service and 236 (31.5%) experienced teachers, of whom 179 (23.9%) were principals and 464 (61.9%) were female (N=750). Each completed either the Experiences in Close Relationships questionnaire (ECR: Brennan, Clark, & Shaver, 1998) or a revised version for teachers (ECR-RT) based on Fraley and colleagues (2000) to compute attachment style. Pre-service teachers were also asked to report feelings of anger toward students and staff during practicum. Results: Multiple and logistic regressions assessed the choice of Teaching Type, Gender, Age and Experience, in relation to Attachment (Anxiety and Avoidance) and Anger. A number of significant associations were discovered. MANOVA found significant differences in attachment style by Principal Type and Age Group. Pre-service teachers' reported the highest levels of both Anxiety and Avoidance, Principals the lowest. For Anger at Students, secondary teachers reported higher frequencies. Only secondary teachers reported Anger at Staff. The combined results provide partial support for the hypotheses. Significance of the Research: If initial motivation to teach is predicted by an insecure attachment style, these teachers are vulnerable to student rejection. Adding psycho-education to pre-service courses would produce more resilience in teachers entering classrooms for the first time. (Contains 1 figure, 7 tables and 1 footnote.).
