Promotional Information

`It is difficult to exaggerate the importance of Dr Bowlby's work. . . . In practical terms, his ideas have modified and 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 which was sadly lacking'. Anthony Storr in the Sunday times.

About the Author

John Bowlby (1907 - 1990) was educated at the University of Cambridge and University College Hospital, London. After qualifying in medicine, he specialised in child psychiatry and psychoanalysis. In 1946 he joined the staff of the Tavistock Clinic where his research and influential publications contributed to far-reaching changes in the ways children are treated and to radical new thinking about the social and emotional development of human beings. He held honorary degrees from the Universities of Cambridge and Leicester and received awards from professional and scientific bodies, including the Royal College of Psychiatrists, the British Paediatric Association, the American Psychological Association and the New York Academy of Medicine.

Reviews

It is difficult to exaggerate the importance of Dr Bowlby's work... In practical terms, his ideas have modified and 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 which was sadly lacking. * Sunday Times *
The publication of Attachment and Loss will prove a turning point in the history of psychoanalysis and in psychology generally. * Times Literary Supplement *
There can be no question that Bowlby is making a major contribution to the understanding of deviant emotional development in childhood and after. * Child Psychology and Psychiatry *
