hodges and tizard study- privation


studyed 3 groups of children:

  • in an orphanage then adpoted- suffered from privation whilst in orphanage but became attached to foster parents. they generally recovered from the effects of privation
  • in a orphanage, then restored to parents- these children often struggled to find and keep friends their home life didn't seem to help their recovery
  • never in a orphanage (control group)- these were more emotionally and socially stable and less likely to be rated as quarrelsome by their teachers


  • high population validity as it looked at a larger sample than the Genie and Czech twin case…
