Psychology: Complete Study and Revision Guide - Cara Flanagan. Evaluation of Bowlby’s Maternal Deprivation Theory. Bowlby was a psychologist who founded a very influential theory about child attachment, this is often known as the maternal deprivation theory (Bowlby, 1951).

Evaluation of Bowlby’s Maternal Deprivation Theory

In this theory Bowlby suggested that children have a critical period, which is between birth and two years of age, that their primary care-giver must care for the child continuously through this period and that if a child is deprived of this care it will suffer severe irreversible damage including affectionless psychopathy, mental retardation, delinquency and depression. If you pull apart this theory piece by piece large holes start to appear, the first being with monotropy. Schaffer and Emerson’s study (1964) showed that by 18 months of age less than 18% of children had only one attachment and some had as many as five. Rutter (1979) demonstrated that children show the same distress when separated from their mother as from inanimate objects that they seem attached too. References Bowlby, J. (1944). Bowlby, J.
