Child Psychiatry Perspectives: Women, Work, and children. Carol Nadelson and Malkah Notman. Pp. 863-875.

Citing the increase in the number of working mothers and the change in what has been considered a traditional family structure, the authors point our that most women who work do so out of economic necessity and that they add their job responsibilities to their traditional ones. Recnet literature on maternal attachment has made it necessary to consider ho the separation of thw working mother from her child affects the child. The authors review some of the most recent literature in this area and point out that not only is the quality of care most critical to the child but taht there is evidence that infants can form more than one attachment. They also review the literature on the impact on older children of mothers' working, from which it appears taht maternal employment has a positive effect, particularly on daughters. The authors conclude that there may be benefits for mothers, children, and families in terms of the quality of relationships and identifications when mothers work.
