Edward John Mostyn Bowlby was a British psychiatrist who had contributed to the field of childhood and developmental psychiatry. His early loss of a ‘mother figure’ left an impression which has laid foundations for his future work on attachment theory. Initially he became a surgeon and later joined the institute of psychoanalysis and worked on delinquent children. The work of John Bowlby has influenced, and been the foundation of, several other theories in behavioral psychology.
