Representation/Bowlby/Attachment theory/Shaver/Mikulincer: although Bowlby (1982/1969(1), 1988(2)) assumed that age and psychological development result in an increased ability to gain comfort from attachment-related mental representations, he also assumed that no one of any age is completely free of reliance on actual others when confronting illness, death of loved others, aging and other natural and human-caused disasters and traumas.

Representation/Bowlby: Bowlby (1973)(3) assumed that the residues of (…) social encounters are stored as mental representations of person-environment transactions, which he called working models of self and other, and that these representations shape the functioning of a person’s >behavioural system and the way he or she behaves in particular social situations.
