Disruption Of Attachment

Robertsons studied Laura and John (brief separation)

Laura- 8 day hospital stay with regularly changing staff, extremeley upset at fist, then quiet and withdrawn

John- Nursery for nine days, normal behaviour then attention seeking behaviour, struggles to get away from mother when she returns

Maintaining the emotional bond

If substitute emotional care is provided, the ill effects of separation are reduced, emotional disruption rather than just physical separation is important
