Book Description

Separation, the second volume of Attachment and Loss, continues John Bowlby's influential work on the importance of the parental relationship to mental health.



Here he considers separation and the anxiety that accompanies it: the fear of imminent or anticipated separation, the fear induced by parental threats of separation, and the inversion of the parent-child relationship.



Dr Bowlby re-examines the situations that cause us to feel fear and compares them with evidence from animals. He concludes that fear is initially aroused by certain elemental situations - sudden movement, darkness or separation - which, although intrinsically harmless, are indicative of an increased risk of danger.



Product Description

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 which was sadly lacking." (Anthony Storr Sunday Times)

Book Description

'It is difficult to exaggerate the importance of Dr Bowlby's work' Sunday Times

Attachment and Loss by John Bowlby is probably one of the most profound books I have read on the subject for a long time. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to understand feelings, reactions and how to cope with the issues of abandonment, separation and loss. The book is easy to read and to understand.
