Harlow's Study on Attachment: Child Abuse and Neglect in the Chasidic World

When I think of some of my friends who grew up in the Chasidic world, I often think of Harlow's study on attachment.  All too often I hear horror stories of how many children are left to fend for themselves. Never really ever having the opportunity to develop healthy attachments with either parent.  The same thing happens with children who grew up in cult like settings, boarding schools, yeshivas or with extremely abusive families.  –– Vicki Polin
