Kingsley Miller is the author of 'even Toddlers Need Fathers', a critique of the principle of 'Maternal Deprivation' as applied in family courts, which Professor Sir Michael Rutter described as an, 'interesting and informative guide'. He has also received a letter from Buckingham Palace stating, 'It was thoughtful of you to enclose a copy of your book 'even Toddlers Need Fathers' and Her Majesty has noted your concerns'.

Rutter's work which you refer to is from 1971 and I believe it looked at the effects of children removed for adoption.  Conclusion was child suffered short term trauma on separation but was able to overcome this when settled into a new stable family.  It is a hard reference to find and I was not able to access the whole article so I am prepared to be corrected on this.  Rutter has done a lot of work in the field of adoption from what I can see.

Interestingly, while searching for the reference you mentioned I found an article co-authoured by M Rutter (might be a different or the same Rutter) which said longitidinal studies have shown Romanian orphans who were institutionally deprived showed persistent and distinct patterns of psychological/cognitive deficits that were a direct results of the institutional deprivation they endured.  This was research published in 2010.
April,

Please give URL.

I will make comments about your remarks on Bowlby on the nurturing forum.

Hi Kip

I searched for the reference you gave on databases which are not available to the general public on the internet (i.e. professional databases), so URL not available.  Have you tried searching for it on Google Scholar?

As far as Bowlby is concerned I am not interested in getting into a debate with you about his work. I have said before there is more relevant recent research which informs family law matters.  Also using a video you made yourself as evidence for your claims is a bit dodgy IMO.
April,

They don't call me 'shifty kip' for nothing.

You obviously have a good grasp of Bowlby's views especially, a secure base and sensitive periods. (Stop me laughing!)

I guess you must teach it or have a psychology qualification?

I will use quotes on another occasion (and thread) to show how these discredited concepts are applied in court to stop contact.

'Shifty' kip

PS Change your syllabus and mug up a bit more on Professor Sir Michael Rutter.

PPS Lack of URLs stifles informed debate!
