Book Description

5 Feb 1998 Attachment & Loss

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)

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very informative 3 Mar 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am currently training to be a counsellor and became interested in attachment theory after reading about Psychodynamic counselling. I believed that attachment theory could be related to my own personal experiences.

I have to admit the first few chapters were quite hard going as Bowlby talks about research and the gathering of data, but once you get to Chapter 6 and he starts talking about the findings of the studies then it becomes more interesting and easier to read.

It covers studies on adults who have lost their spouses, parents who have lost their children and carries on looking until we come to children who lose their parents.

I highly recommend this book. It is extremely interesting and I believe people in general can learn a lot from it. I will be going on to read his other volumes, most definitely.

3.0 out of 5 stars very useful resource book 17 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is useful for students of counselling and psycology as Bowlby is one of most insightful psychologists of his day who had a real impact into how we now understand human attachment. I found it easy to read and a useful book to quote from. book came within good time spam so more than happy with amazon having ordered a good number of books with them now.
