Twenty years have passed since "Maternal Deprivation" was first greeted with a storm of controversy. Some early views have been modified, but the basic proposition - that lack, loss or distortion of child care have a very important effect on psychological development - has received substantial support. In this book the author reviews the qualities of motherhood needed for the normal development and considers both short-term and long-term effects of maternal deprivation.
