These two films, John, 17 months, 9 Days in a Residential Nursery and Jane, 17 months, in Foster Care for 10 Days, when shown together provide an introduction to the work of James and Joyce Robertson showing how the young child’s ability to cope with separation from the mother is affected by the quality of substitute care. For deeper understanding of the research and the developmental issues involved we strongly recommend viewing the complete five film series, ”Young Children in Brief Separation”.
German version also available. A guide booklet accompanies the film.
