Summary/Abstract: The Attachment Theory is one of the most influential theories in child development psychology, at its conceptual core being the idea that early parent-child relationship has the potential of influencing and shaping the whole human experience. The purpose of the present research is to highlighten some of the universal and local features of the attachment paradigm. The theoretical inquiry indicates that the assessment of infant attachment, using the Strange Situation Protocol, is subject to cultural differences. Further scientific investigations should intensity the research on variability in the attachment assessment, as there are large policy and practical implications.
