Mary Ainsworth (1913–1999), a pioneering developmental psychologist, co-developed attachment theory. Renowned for the “Strange Situation” procedure, she identified secure, insecure-avoidant, and insecure-ambivalent attachment patterns in children. Ainsworth’s impactful research revolutionized our understanding of early relationships, influencing theories of parenting and child development.
