The Actor–Partner Interdependence Model: A model of bidirectional effects in developmental studies

The Actor–Partner Interdependence Model: A model of bidirectional effects in developmental studies The actor–partner interdependence model (APIM) is a model of dyadicrelationships that integrates a conceptual view of interdependence with theappropriate statistical techniques for measuring and testing it. In this article wepresent the APIM as a general, longitudinal model for measuring bidirectionaleffects in interpersonal relationships. We also present three different approachesto testing the model. The statistical analysis of the APIM is illustrated usinglongitudinal data on relationship specific attachment security from 203mother–adolescent dyads. The results support the view that interpersonalinfluence on attachment security is bidirectional. Moreover, consistent with ahypothesis from attachment theory, the degree to which a child’sattachment security is influenced by his or her primary caregiver is found todiminish with age. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Behavioral Development SAGE

Abstract

The actor–partner interdependence model (APIM) is a model of dyadicrelationships that integrates a conceptual view of interdependence with theappropriate statistical techniques for measuring and testing it. In this article wepresent the APIM as a general, longitudinal model for measuring bidirectionaleffects in interpersonal relationships. We also present three different approachesto testing the model. The statistical analysis of the APIM is illustrated usinglongitudinal data on relationship specific attachment security from 203mother–adolescent dyads. The results support the view that interpersonalinfluence on attachment security is bidirectional. Moreover, consistent with ahypothesis from attachment theory, the degree to which a child’sattachment security is influenced by his or her primary caregiver is found todiminish with age.
