John Bowlby (1907-1990) was a British psychiatrist and psychoanalyst who made significant contributions to the field of developmental psychology and attachment theory. He is best known for his work on the importance of early attachment bonds between children and their primary caregivers. Bowlby's research highlighted the critical role of secure attachments in a child's emotional and social development. His theory has had a profound impact on understanding human bonding, separation anxiety, and the influence of early relationships on later life.
