Portello, Jacqueline Y.
Canadian Journal of Counselling, v27 n3 p177-90 Jul 1993
Reviews literature on attachment process between adopted children and their mothers. Explains empirical research in relation to Bowlby's theoretical formulation of attachment, basic thesis of which is that infants develop affectional bonds at specific ages of their development and, therefore, child's age at time of adoption is important determinant of secure mother-infant attachment. Makes recommendations for future research. (Author/NB)
