Determinants of Infant Behaviour II

£14.99

Product description

This is the published version of the second of a remarkable and historic series of seminars on relations between mothers and infants, organised by the Tavistock Clinic under the auspices of the Ciba Foundation in September 1961. Unusual in that it approaches the general subject of children and mothers from the aspects of several disciplines, it is probably unique in that it does this for more than one species.

The contents include reports of discoveries concerning the effect of slight brain damage at birth on later behaviour, and of early experience on mothering behaviour in monkeys. There are also detailed reports of mother and child relations in American and African families. Other chapters are concerned with techniques for studying infant behaviour and with theories of development psychology. Many fruitful ideas can be found in the discussions which followed the papers, extracts from which are included in the book.

The contributors, psychologists, psychoanalysts and zoologists, were all leaders in their respective fields

Very good condition book. Former library book but few resulting stamps or marks. Book otherwise clean and undamaged internally and externally. Binding sound. Dust wrapper shows wear mainly at the top and bottom of folds. Spine is sunned and the front has been damaged by the removal of sticky tape. (See photos.)
