9780140138375: Attachment and Loss: Attachment (Penguin Psychology)

This study examines the processes that take place in attachment and separation and shows how experimental studies of children provide us with a recognizable behaviour pattern which is confirmed by discoveries in the biological sciences. Human attachment is seen as an instinctive response to the need for protection against predators and one as important for survival as nutrition and reproduction.
