Interaction/Bowlby/attachment theory/Shaver/Mikulincer: Bowlby (1982/1969)(1) argued that interactions with attachment figures (>Terminology/Bowlby) are stored in at least two kinds of >working models (>Terminology/Bowlby): representations of attachment figures’responses (working models of others) and representations of the self’s lovability and competence (working models of self). He argued that, ‘If an individual is to draw up a plan to achieve a set-goal not only does he have to have some sort of >working model of his environment, but he must have also some working knowledge of his own behavioural skills and potentialities’ (1982/1969(1), p. 112).
