Perhaps one reason for this oversight has been the primary focus on the developmental progression of the intrapsychic processes and the resulting internalized conflicts of infants.

The consolidation of this form of psychic structure culminates during the oedipal period with the emergence of a strong enough ego and superego which are able to withstand the instinctual pressures of the id.

As it is impossible in real situations to separate the integration of affect and the role of parents and caregivers in affect attunement, we now switch our emphasis from the arousal of affects in developing infants to the role of parents and caregivers as self objects. 3 Parents as Organizers of SelfDevelopment in Childhood THE IMPORTANCE OF THE INFANT-PARENT DYAD FOR PSYCHIC DEVELOPMENT The emotional and intellectual capacity of parents and caregivers to foster and integrate self-experiences and associated affects of their infants has been underestimated in the classical psychoanalytic literature.

This decreased need for external supports by early adolescents means that unsettling events or intense affects have less of a disruptive effect on their psychic structure, hence on their sense of self. Only when their formal operational thinking and their psychic structure have consolidated, and the internal intensity of their affects have diminished can one say that early adolescents have entered adolescence proper. Adolescents are now able to maintain a higher level of cognitive thinking even in the midst of affect storms, states of confusion, or new situations.
