EARLY RELATIONSHIP DISTURBANCE Bowlby’s work emphasizing the quality of early adaptation and continuity in experience provides a framework for conceptualizing early relationship disturbances and their links to psychopathology (Sroufe, 1989). Disturbed early relationships are viewed as markers of a process that leaves individuals vulnerable to normative stresses and the development of pathology (Sameroff & Emde, 1989). Although disturbance within the child may manifest itself at an early age (infancy or toddlerhood) in the context of extreme deprivation or maltreatment, in most cases early disturbance lies within the dyadic relationship and only gradually takes the form of enduring disturbance within the child.
