Bowlby postulates that this attachment figure this single attachment was a secure base for the child to hold on to and explore the world. This attachment served as the foundation of all of the child 's relationship in the future. Bowlby (1951) claimed that mothering is most critical in the first two years and remains risky till the first five years, which could have long term consequences if the attachment figure is broken or dusrupted during this time. Bowlby then used the term 'maternal deprivation ' to explain the loss of the mother or the faikure to develop an attachment. The underlying assumption of Bowlby’s Maternal Deprivation Hypothesis is that continual disruption of the attachment between infant and primary caregiver (i.e.
Child Protective Services gave out a sample of 6,200 children who were placed in long-term and short-term foster care. Next, the researchers only chose the adolescents to do the study on. The group of adolescents was then broken up into smaller categories such as sex, race, placement type, types of abuse the children have received, and the type of caregiver the children were placed with. The entire measure consisted of 113 items that assess the youth’s somatic complaints, anxiety and depression symptoms, withdrawn delinquency and aggression. Internal and external consistency were measured within the sample (NSCAW, 2009).
Hundred and forty youth completed the interview and it showed that they have mental health problems like; conduct disorder, depression, fulfillment of the DSM-III criteria for and emotional and behavioral disorder and attempt of suicide (Feitel, Margetson, Chamas, Lipman, 1992). A study was conducted between adolescent runaways and adolescents who never ran away. A self administered questionnaire which was confidential was used. The runaways who were administered in this study indicated that situational stresses affected them through which their functioning was impaired. These stresses included relation with family, schools, etc.
Introduction Psychosexual development theory is a child development theory of five stages proposed by Sigmund Freud. According to Freud that psychological development in childhood takes place in a series of fixed stages. It is called psychosexual stages because each stage has an area where pleasure derives and also some fixation occur in that particular stage as well as in adulthood if the child gets unsuccessful in it. Hence parents can play important roles in order to avoid the fixation. 2.10- Stage : Oral stage (birth to 1 year) Oral stage is the first stage of Sigmund Freud’s psychosexual development theory.

Wiley InterScience: Personality and Mental Health, 1(1), 40-50. doi: 10.1002/pmh.4 Purpose of the Study: The purpose of this study was to first determine factors associated with parental stress with a newborn in the NICU, and then compare these factors and their response between mothers and fathers. “The objective of this study is to compare sources of NICU stress for mothers and fathers and explore variables associated with NICU stress.” (Background) The parent’s perception of stress (Mother vs father) and the factors that contribute to stress perception were also included.
They provided age appropriate tests and questioners for mothers, questioners were also given to the child’s teachers once they became school aged. This study was set up to evaluate the child's progress at certain stages of the child’s life. Starting at five months they checked the overall health of the child; at twelve months, they evaluated the type of attachment between child and mother; at twelve, eighteen, and thirty months, and at seven and fourteen years, they evaluated maternal sensitivity and temperament of the child; at seven and fourteen years, they evaluated the social development of that child, and stressful life events along with social status of the family. The study concluded that developmental history and past experiences, along with present circumstances, and the child’s characteristics played a role in the child’s social development. Another study compared IQs between children who had been adopted, and children or siblings who had remained in institutional care or in the care of their biological parents.
Maternal deprivation theory formulated by Bowlby refers to various situations in which a child is separated by his mother or by a permanent substitute caregiver. The situations may range from : returning to work after the maternity leave period, hospitalisation of the child (but could be of the mother as well by implicit consequences), death of the mother, abandonment of the child in orphanages and residential nurseries. Given the pivotal influence a secure attachment has for the child in the long term, Bowlby rightfully started to investigate the effects of the interruptions in the relationship. In 1951 he presented his conclusions to the WHO ( World Health Organisation). He believed that daycare children younger than three or even five years old were at great and permanent psychological danger due to maternal deprivation.
Bowlby spent time working as a psychiatrist in London in the 1930s where he worked with orphaned children. This period of time encouraged Bowlby to evaluate the importance of the child's relationship with the mother. It helped form his belief about the connection between early infant separations with mothers and later issues with the child's social, emotional and cognitive skills and ultimately led Bowlby to construct his attachment theory (Bowlby, 2005). Bowlby observed that children experienced sharp anguish when separated from their mothers. Being fed from other caregivers did not lessen the child's distress.

For the 2-week the participants were asked to perform spontaneous vaginal delivery by low cost delivery model under supervision. For the 3-week the participants were asked to perform spontaneous vaginal delivery by low cost delivery model without supervision. In the 4-week performance assessment was done of 17 students by checklist and results were analyzed. Results: I Demographic Variables : The results obtained in the present study showed that subjects mean age in the experimental and control group were 21.5 and 22 years respectively. 37% of the participants willingly joined nursing and 56% joined on the wish of their parents and 7 % were not interested in nursing.
