Attachment
Free text Selection of key lectures given by John Bowlby (1907 -1990) who is considered the father of Attachment Theory. In the words of the author in lecture 7: "what I am terming attachment theory is a way of conceptualizing the propensity of human beings to make strong affectional bonds to particular others and of explaining the many forms of emotional distress and personality disturbance, including anxiety, anger, depression, and emotional detachment, to which unwilling separation and loss give rise."
