Description Despite the fact that the “father” of attachment theory John Bowlby referred in the first volume of his seminal trilogy to the work of Czech researchers, the most influential developmental theory of the 20th century was almost ignored in Czech psychology for a long period of time. The awareness of Bowlby’s work in the psychological community in the period ending with the Velvet Revolution in 1989 is difficult to evaluate nowadays. As anecdotal evidence, in the 1990s attachment theory was not included in developmental psychology courses in the master’s degree in psychology. The aim of this presentation is to describe a history of attachment research in the Czech Republic with great details of current Czech attachment research projects.
