Abstract: Infant attachment its correlates and intervention studied on a sample of 60 each urban and rural infants and parents of Dharwad taluk revealed that most (63.3%) of the urban and rural (60%) infants had secure attachment while the rest had insecure attachment. Pattern of the attachment did not differ significantly between urban and rural infants. The factors that had direct influence on infant attachment in both urban and rural areas were Mother’s and father’s knowledge on infant development and mothers acceptance. Father’s self esteem had influence exclusively in case of urban infants and infant temperament, mothers self esteem and mothers involvement with infants had influence exclusively in rural infants. While responsivity, parenting stress of mother and father, fathers temperament had indirect effect on urban and rural infants attachment. Mothers occupational stress, mothers’ involvement with infants and child care, mothers self esteem, mothers and infant temperament had indirect effects on urban infant attachment. Infant attachment influenced the socio-emotional behaviour, language development and adaptive behaviour of urban and rural infants. As maternal knowledge on infant development, self esteem and infant temperament had a direct influence of infant attachment an educational package was developed for parents to strengthen infant attachment for enhancing parents knowledge on infant development, self esteem and infant temperament. An intervention was provided for 40 rural mothers of 11-24 months infants through an interrupted time series experimental research design. The post intervention scores revealed significant increase in right knowledge and decrease in wrong knowledge on infant development and significant increase in self esteem level among rural mothers.
