How do small children feel when they are separated from their parents and familiar surroundings? In this account of their pioneering research, the authors describe the anxiety, loneliness and despair of young children in hospital, foster homes and institutions in Britain in the 1950s and 1960s. This is the first history of a uniquely influential couple in the field of child health, who pioneered research into the effects of separation from the mother when a small child went into hospital. Their work revolutionised the policy of hospitals.
