Description:
Narrated by Joyce Robertson, this short film will have most of your students close to tears and really help them to appreciate the importance of studying children’s attachment behaviour. It shows the 17 month old John being looked after in a residential nursery for nine days while his mother is in hospital having her second child. John exhibits all the classic signs of separation distress during his stay (watch out for the look that he gives his mother when she finally turns up to take him home!). The case of John is contrasted with that of Jane, who receives substitute mothering from Robertson herself while her mother is in hospital having a child. The conclusion is that substitute mothering minimises the negative effects of separation from the primary attachment figure. Black and white. Running time is 21 minutes.
