In Bowlby's theory of maternal deprivation one of my AO3 points is that Levy et al.'s animal study supports the main aspect of maternal deprivation because it suggests that separation from a mother, even as little as a day, can lead to permanent harm in the development of the child. I then went on to say this research increased the external validity of Bowlby's theory. Would that be the most suitable terminology? As I thought I could slightly change my point if not and write about concurrent validity (the second experiment took place recently).
