This commentary focuses on the important contributions of the Beebe et al. (present issue) study to understanding precursors to attachment, including the addition of a particular focus on infant contributions to the dyadic interactions related to attachment outcomes, as well as a better understanding of the precursors specific to insecure-ambivalent attachment and attachment disorganization. In addition, limitations of the time series methodology for interpreting the meaning of maternal interactive contingency findings from an attachment perspective are discussed. Finally, implications of the present study for both clinical work and research are highlighted throughout.
