Jane, aged 17 months, in foster care for 10 days by James Robertson( Visual )

12 editions published between 1967 and 1990 in English and French and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jane is a bright active child of 17 months who is in foster care for 10 days. At this age she cannot keep a clear image of her mother in her mind, and makes a strong attachment to the foster mother. Although she copes and relates well, there are times of confusion and she cools towards her visiting father. Care by a responsive substitute mother keeps alive Jane's experience of warm mothering, so that at reunion she goes eagerly back to her mother. But she is not abruptly separated from the foster mother. In order that Jane should not suffer the sudden loss of someone to whom she has become strongly attached, the foster mother visits over the next few weeks

Lucy, aged 21 months, in foster care for 19 days( Visual )

5 editions published between 1969 and 1990 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lucy, 21 months, a sturdy serious child, is in foster care for 19 days. Like Jane above she is too young to carry a clear image of the absent mother and readily accepts the foster mother's care. Lucy is helped by her father's daily visits, and by her relationship resistive behaviour. At reunion she returns happily to her mother. But there is a problem. During the 19 days Lucy had become very attached to her foster mother and has difficulty in giving her up. The film shows dramatically the conflict of feeling, and how during subsequent weeks mother and foster mother co-operate in helping Lucy to resolve it

Thomas, aged 2 years, 4 months, in foster care for 10 days( Visual )

7 editions published between 1969 and 1990 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas is an active little boy of 2 years 4 months who is in foster care for ten days. He speaks well and has a good understanding of the reasons for the separation from his mother. He is well supported by a father who visits every day, and who shows much understanding of his son. There are times when the strong wish for the mother makes Thomas turn away from her photograph, but throughout he carries a clear and loving image of her. His need for affection and physical care from the foster mother conflicts with his loyalty to the absent mother; so loving embraces sometime turn into punching and scratching. At reunion he discards the foster mother and is tender and affectionate to his mother. (There is some live sound of Thomas's voice). Bronze Medal, British Medical Association
