Free text Dr. John Bowlby (1907 - 1990) is considered the father of Attachment Theory. This book is based on the WHO sponsored report by the author and published in 1951: Maternal Care and Mental Health. He presents here his observations on how mental health can be affected by deprivation in the early years - this includes children placed in institutions and disfunctional families. Chapter 11 is on Substitute Families and covers adoption and foster care of children.
