Ursula Longstaff Bowlby (1916-2000): The Creative Inspiration behind the Secure Base

Brett Kahr

The name of Ursula Longstaff Bowlby (1916-2000) will not be particularly well known to attachment-based researchers and clinicians, although she stood beside her husband Dr John Bowlby and accompanied him, encouraged him, and supported him through his profound lifetime work on the study of intimate human relationships. Not only did Ursula Bowlby facilitate her husband's professional activities in various ways, she also made many contributions of her own to the field of psychology, as a columnist and, also, as the author of a textbook on Happy Infancy, which criticised the restrictive Truby King approach to child care. In this tribute, the author introduces readers to the life and work of Mrs. Bowlby, based upon interviews with family members and upon unpublished archival data, as well as upon an account of the author's meeting with Mrs Bowlby herself in 1995.
