Phillip R. Shaver on Representation - Dictionary of Arguments

Corr I 238
Representations/attachment theory/Shaver/Mikulincer: as compared with other mental representations, (a) working models (see >Terminology/Bowlby) also contain or express a person’s wishes, fears, conflicts and psychological defences; (b, a related point) working models seem to have a powerful affective component and tend to be shaped by emotion-regulation processes; (c) working models tend to be constructed in relational terms and to organize representations of the social self, interaction partners and social interactions; and (d) attachment working models are broad, rich and complex structures which can include tandem or opposite representations of the same social experiences at episodic, semantic and procedural levels of encoding (Shaver, Collins and Clark 1996)(1).
