URGENT - Bowlby?????Watch
Like if the exam asked 'Outline Bowlby's theory of maternal deprivation?' would i include ASCMI???
ASCIMI (which is actually referred to as the evolutionary theory or monotropic theory) is about how and why an infant attaches to a care giver, whereas the maternal deprivation theory refers to the effects of not having a mother, or a mother substitute, during the critical period of life.
If you get a question about maternal deprivation, you'll mention things such as affectionless psychopathy, mental ******ation, the 44 thieves study etc etc.
You will get no marks for mentioning ASCIMI on a question about maternal deprivation (maybe 1 mark at most for mentioning the critical period).
