Loss Sadness & Depression Volume 3 Attachmenby John Bowlby
Synopses & Reviews
This is the third and final volume of a work that explores the implications for the psychology and psychopathology of personality of the ways in which young children respond to a temporary or permanent loss of mother-figure. The primary data are observations of how young children behave in defined situations; in the light of these data an attempt is made to describe certain early phases of personality functioning and, from them, to extrapolate forwards.
This third volume of his Attachment and Loss series explores the implications for the psychology and psychopathology of personality of the ways in which young children respond to a temporary or permanent loss of a mother figure.
Bowlbys seminal contribution to the way we understand attachment concludes with an examination of loss. He offers not only a new developmental model but also rare insight into the dynamics of mourning, the problems of depression, and the processes of accommodation and healing. An appreciation by Daniel Stern, whose research on the mother/infant bond affirms and expands on Bowlbys work, fittingly graces this new edition.
