Susan GOLDBERG, Professor And Researcher: 1938-2005
Psychologist at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children wrote the book on parent-child attachment
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, July 4, 2005, Page S6
As a research psychologist at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children, her work on attachment in children was internationally recognized. As a social activist involved in the peace movement, she guided parents on how to talk to their children about nuclear war. And as a folk musician, she formed choirs and song circles as part of her deep belief that building community could be done through music.
During her career, Susan GOLDBERG, who has died in Toronto at the age of 67, made significant contributions on the psychosocial implications of early medical problems, such as prematurity, developmental delay, cystic fibrosis and congenital heart disease, how they impact on parent-infant relationships and their consequences for a child's future emotional and social development.
Her book, Attachment and Development, was considered one of the best books on the subject, says Dr. Jean WITTENBERG, head of the infant psychiatry program at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. "She was able to put the theories into language that people understood," he said.
In the last months of her life, Dr. GOLDBERG's study of parent-child attachment was recognized and honoured when she received the Bowlby-Ainsworth Award from the Centre for Mental Health Promotion and the New York Attachment Consortium.
Susan WEISSMAN was a native of New York. Growing up in the Bronx, her parents Frank and Anne WEISSMAN were members of the Communist party and active in the labour movement. Childhood was filled with music, summer camps with the children of fellow Communists and lots of discussion about the rights of workers. She breezed through school; she was 16 when she went off to Antioch University in Yellow Springs, Ohio -- then a hotbed for social activism. It was there that she met her future husband Stanley GOLDBERG. They married and moved to Boston where he did graduate work in the history of science.
In the late 1960s, they moved to Zambia where Mr. GOLDBERG got a teaching job. They stayed in Africa for a couple of years before returning to the United States. Dr. GOLDBERG completed her PhD in child-developmental psychology and in 1974, the couple separated. With three young children, she moved to the Boston area where she got a job at Brandeis University. She taught there for the next seven years.
In 1981, Dr. GOLDBERG moved her family to Toronto and joined the psychiatry research unit at Sick Kids. Six years later, she was appointed professor of psychiatry and psychology at the University of Toronto.
"She was a very kindly mentor," said her former colleague Dr. Susan BRADLEY. " She was extremely valued and sought out by students. She mentored more PhD students than anyone else in our department."
During her career, she was also a member of the editorial boards of the Monographs of the Society for Research in Child Development and Infant Behaviour and Development and played a leadership role among Canadian attachment researchers.
Active in the peace movement and having studied the effects of war on children, she wrote a guide called Facing the Nuclear Age: Parents and Children Together and spent time with parents groups to help them understand how to best talk to their children about nuclear war.
During the Gulf War of 1990, she put together a booklet that was distributed to Toronto school teachers to guide them in their discussions about global conflict in the classroom. In the guidelines, she recommends: "It is important that youngsters have an opportunity to express their concerns and to feel adults are taking those concerns seriously. Acknowledge that it is difficult to concentrate on other things in the wake of these events. You may, after some initial discussion, be able to set aside some time each day for this issue."
In the mid-1990s, Dr. GOLDBERG came up with a finding, which at the time she said could alter theories about parent-child attachment.
In experiments involving Romanian-born and Canadian-born four-year-olds, she found a tenfold difference in the tendency of Romanian-born orphaned children to be indiscriminately friendly.
"They would walk up to a stranger and behave affectionately with no hesitation and without checking with their mother," she told The Globe and Mail. This kind of unguarded behaviour normally is thought to result from the lack of a secure bond with a parent, she said at the time, but the Romanian children observed did have good bonds with their adoptive parents.
"Preschoolers who go up to strangers and behave affectionately cannot be said to be well protected," she said. "We have to clue-in parents that being sociable and friendly isn't always a positive thing." Indiscriminate affection is a good survival skill in an orphanage -- since it can win a child attention from busy staff -- but even children who have been in an adoptive family for several years continue to show this behaviour, Dr. GOLDBERG's research found.
Outside her research, Dr. GOLDBERG's other passion was music. "She had a life-long love of folk music," said her daughter Eve GOLDBERG, who is herself a professional musician. "She was always singing. We always had music in the house."
An organizer of the Woods Music and Dance Camp for adults in the Muskoka area of Ontario, she also started a Toronto community choir with her daughter Eve about six years ago. Created with the aim of singing folk music from around the world, the Common Thread Community Choir now has about 70 singers. "She was the heart and soul of the choir," said Eve.
Considered unpretentious by her colleagues, Dr. GOLDBERG was also extremely private. "She never talked about her feelings," Dr. WITTENBERG said. However, she could be outspoken if she felt an injustice had been committed. He recalls a particular child-development conference in Boston in which Dr. GOLDBERG stood up and challenged a top international researcher when he made what she felt was a misogynistic comment. "It was talked about for a long time."
Dr. GOLDBERG had been fighting cancer for several years. About 15 years ago she endured two lumpectomies and later a mastectomy. Last summer, doctors told her that the cancer had spread to her lung. Several months later, it spread to her brain. While she had retired in the early 2000s, she maintained an office and continued her research for as long as she could.
In her honour, the Susan Goldberg Colloquium on attachment, development and child psychotherapies has been established. It will be held every year at Sick Kids. When she heard the news, she told a colleague that she wished she could be there -- at least for the first one.
Susan GOLDBERG was born on March 25, 1938 in New York. She died at home in Toronto on June 14, 2005, surrounded by Friends and family. She leaves her children Ruth, David and Eve; sister Terry and brother Peter.
