9780140138375: Attachment and Loss: Attachment v. 1 (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.

Review:

"The publication of Attachment and Loss will prove a turning-point in the history of psychoanalysis and psychology generally" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"It is difficult to exaggerate the importance of Dr Bowlby's work... In practical terms, his ideas have modified and will continue to influence the rearing of children and the treatment of those who are disturbed. In theoretical terms, his contributions have given psychoanalysis a shot in the arm and a biological perspective that was sadly lacking" (Anthony Storr Sunday Times)

Book Description:

An enthralling, pioneering and now classic account of the processes that take place in human attachment and separation.
