Abstract

Argues that there is a need to more fully understand both partners' participation in establishing and maintaining bouts of joint attention during naturalistic play / suggest that reciprocity in joint attention in the 2nd year is a developmentally advanced analogue to mutual regulation of affective expression in earlier face-to-face mother–infant play / present data obtained from 120 socioeconomically disadvantaged adolescent mother (aged 13–19 yrs) and infant dyads at 6, 12, 20, and 28–36 mo postpartum] suggesting that maternal depressive symptoms, maternal sensitivity, and child gender, are related to patterns of establishing and maintaining joint attention when infants are 12 and 20 mos of age (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved)
