Hugely important study. Shows child vying for attention from his primary caregiver (mom). 

Measuring Attachment: Strange Situation  [youtube]

Hugely important study. Shows young children exhibit attachment styles in the face of relationally anxiety provoking .  Relate to any of these kids? nb. questionable research ethics, I hope the kids got unlimited therapy for participation. 

Attachment Theory: How Your Childhood Shaped You  [youtube]

InBrief: The Science of Neglect [youtube]

Food for thought- Why do we continue to praise The Giving Tree  as a children's story? This sends a message that is a bit too self-sacrificial (some might use the term "co-dependent")
