Peter is 10 years old and is cared for by his grandparents following removal from his mother at a few months of age. At first he was with foster-parents, separated from his two older brothers. After several changes of foster homes, his grandparents decided they could take him and his  brothers and care for them until they were old enough to be independent. Peter has some behavioural issues and attachment difficulties. He  finds it hard to integrate into social groups with his peers as they don’t want to include him. Unfortunately, Peter has an issue with soiling  himself and is undergoing therapy for this at the local hospital. He often smells of faeces and is shunned by the other children and called  ‘smelly’. He suffers name calling and bullying.

Peter has attachment issues that mean he does not trust people and thinks that those who are  friendly towards him will eventually turn against him. He cannot form a loving relationship with his siblings or grandparents and feels they could  abandon him at any time.

  1. Identify theories of socio-emotional development in relation to childhood and attachment up to the age of 11 years and discuss  critically, linking your discussion to the case study. (Developmental psychology).
  1. Identify theories relating to exclusion and discrimination as inter-group behaviour and social influence processes and discuss critically in relation to the case study. (Social psychology).

  • Address the essay question throughout. Additionally, make sure to link the arguments and debates you present, back to the key concepts and aims of your essay throughout.
