Anat Scher, Orly Blumberg

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    In a model of motherhood Raphael‐Leff (1983) delineated two basic orientations: the Facilitator who adapts to the baby and the Regulator who expects the baby to adapt. The FR questionnaire was completed by 97 Israeli mothers of six‐month‐old infants; 34 per cent were classified as Facilitators, 34 per cent Regulators, 15 per cent Intermediates and 17 per cent were labelled Bipolars. Future research should explore the characteristics of this latter group and its prevalence in other societies. 1992 The British Psychological Society
