Consideraciones sobre la Ansiedad en la Primera Infancia (Considerations Concerning Anxiety in Early Infancy).
The results of an experience obtained while working with children in the early stages of infancy are presented. They are basically observations taken of a child's reaction to sudden changes, particularly separation from its mother. Anxiety was observed in these infants in diverse circumstances; in some cases it was at a normal level and in others at an intense level. This group of children was composed of children of mothers who worked, who left their babies at seven in the morning and came to pick them up in the afternoon. Other areas discussed are the infants' relationship with their mothers and problems surrounding adoption. (CK)
