Attachment 3.1.3


Attachment refers to an emotional bond between one or more individuals which is considered to be necessary for the emotional wellbeing od each individual.

The research for this area began with some animal studies by Lorenz and also by Harlow. Later come some important research from Bowlby, Ainsworth and you might still find some reference to research by Watson.

Consider carefullyt the research in light of the ethical standards we have today and ask, "Does this invalidate the value of the research?"
