Attachment Theory Bowlby (1958): Attachment theory Bowlby’s stages of separation: Protest:  When the kid is separated from the  parents the first stage is protest. The child is  actively protesting their separation from the parent.  Despair:  If parents do not respond to protest stage  then the child becomes really depressed and does  not become responsive and engaging with the  outside world.
