found this

that sort of refers to the bulldogs bank research

mummytosteven Tue 22-Mar-05 13:36:14

probably best off going to your local library and seeing if any child psych textbooks refer to this

this stuff is quite old so probably not likely to get much about it on the internet

Found lots of things about Bowlby that mention schaffer and emerson, but nothing particularly on them.

mummytosteven Tue 22-Mar-05 13:38:34

there was even a German film about the Children of Bulldogs Bank(!)

Haven't got time to read through this, but there might be some stuff in this which will help.

Do any of these help at all:

Bowlby, Schaffer & Emerson

Prof Schaffer's Biography and Selective bibliography

Exact reference to Schaffer and Emerson's original paper
