Mother-To-Infant 'Bonding'.
Herbert, M.; And Others
Child Psychology and Psychiatry and Allied Disciplines, v23 n3 p205-21 Jul 1982
Critically reviews the concept of "bonding," exploring its empirical basis and the implications that follow from its application in practice. Among the conclusions reached are that there is a tendency to oversimplify attachment phenomena and that the notion of a sensitive period for attachment has no direct empirical support. (RH)
