(in psychology) the third subphase of the separation-individuation phase of Mahler's system of preoedipal development. This subphase occurs from approximately 14 months to 2 years or more. This stage is characterized by a rediscovery of and reestablishment with the mother or a significant nurturer in an attempt to have needs met after the initial separation of the practicing subphase in which the child practices autonomous behavior. The narcissistic inflation of the practicing subphase is replaced by a realization of separation and vulnerability.
