how to write a 16m on maternal deprivaiton

hi, im really stuck on how id write a response to a quesiton like 'discuss bowlby's theory of maternal deprivaiton'
im esp stuck for AO1 bc i dont know what is relevant for it and what isnt
for maternal deprivation you should talk about stuff like prolonged separation and like how the mother bond helps to develop the internal working model (thats like a schema of relationships). Maternal deprivation is just about mums and how a mothers bond with their child can affect the child in the future.


ps sorry for the grammatical errors lol

hi thank you so much for the help! i went off and tried to write an AO1 paragraph for it and wondered if u could review it for me please?

Bowly''s maternal deprivation theory refers to how both long and/or short-term disruptions to a monotropic attachment between an infnat and their mother casues irreversible and serious consequences to a child's development.
One aspect of Bowlnby's MDH includes the critical period. This is the period of time (birth to 3 years, later revised to 5 years) which is the most important for an infant's developmont. This means that if an infant experiences any type of disruption durin gthe critical period, it will have the most severe consquences/.

Another feature of the MDH is the internal working model (IWM). This refers to how disruptions occuring during the critical period would would be used as a template for furture relatinoships. For example, if a child experiences inconsistent caregiving or neglect during their early years, they might develop an IWM that views relationships as unreliable and unpredictable. As a result, this child might struggle with trust and intimacy in future relationships, often expecting others to be unreliable or distant. Conversely, a child who receives consistent and responsive caregiving is likely to develop a positive IWM, expecting others to be dependable and nurturing, which fosters healthy relationships later in life.

Bowlby argued for a serioies of consequneces as a result deprivation. One of these consequences is affectionlass psychopathy. This refers to a lack of ability to be able to showcase any sympathy of affection for others. Other consequneces include low IQ as a result of disrupted intellectual development, and delinquency, resulting from disrupted social develpment hence forming behaviour to be outside social norms.
