Bowlby acknowledges the role of such adverse events of childhood as a child being scapegoated, unwanted, controlled by guilt-inducing techniques, or being identified with a grandparent with whom the parent has had a difficult relationship. However, feelings of anxiety and fear remain unresolved and reappear in sometimes chaotic and destructive forms at times of stress.

He cited two articles to demonstrate that pregnant women seek support from their husbands and mothers.Children's behaviours become organised around their expectations of themselves and others and, as they grow older, these expectations tend to influence the way in which others relate to them. His ideas contrast quite nicely with Freud's more absurd theories, but at the same time, often state the obvious. Ellen Broomé welcomed Gillian Schofield and Mary Beek to talk about the new edition of their bestselling publications, The Secure Base Model and Promoting Attachment and Resilience. At the other end of the spectrum, a response that is unavailable or cold will lead to an internal working model of the attachment figure as rejecting, the self as unworthy of care and others as not to be relied on for help and support.

Selective attachments, then, begin to form from birth and early infancy is a critical period for their development, but there are further key stages throughout childhood. Bowlby was a psychoanalyst who was just starting to break the mold that Freud had set, and had been stagnating for several years. A securely attached child does not only seek comfort from an attachment figure, but through feeling safe to explore develops confidence, competence and resilience. The Strange Situation involves the infant experiencing a series of brief separations and reunions while their reactions are observed. The risk, then, is that feelings and behaviours might become fixed in destructive loops and the damage of the past will not be healed.This experience of a secure base settles the baby and reduces his anxiety, which in turn allows him to play and explore. Si bien los conceptos psicoanalíticos abundan, se agradece que estos no opaquen la exposición de la teoría, posibilitando la superación de los modelos de desarrollo clásicos planteados por los primeros psicoanalistas, y facilitando la comprensión y el uso de esta teoría desde otras perspectivas psicológicas. Even now people think first of physical and sexual neglect before emotional neglect (and the book points out how some relatively simple/innocuous can in fact be quite harmful in the long term). La note cinq étoiles est à tout d'abord pour l'auteur de l'ouvrage, John Bowlby, dans lequel il nous renseigne en détail des cas cliniques liés à sa théorie sur l'attachement et à la thématique du premier volume dédié à celle-ci, A Secure Base.
