Overview

A Bestseller

Attachment Theory shows scientifically how our earliest relationships with our mothers influence our later relationships in life. This book offers an excellent introduction to the findings of attachment theory and the major schools of psychoanalytic thought.

"The book every student, colleague, and even rival theoretician has been waiting for. With characteristic wit, philosophical sophistication, scholarship, humanity, incisiveness, and creativity, Fonagy succinctly describes the links, differences, and future directions of his twin themes. [His book] is destined to take its place as one of a select list of essential psychology books of the decade."
-Jeremy Holmes, Senior Lecturer in Psychotherapy, University of Exeter

"Extraordinary—an invaluable resource for developmental psychoanalysis."
-Joy D. Osofsky, Professor, Louisiana State University

This well written volume convincingly places attachment theory in context with other contemporary psychoanalytic theories. Fonagy's arguments and ideas generate useful formulations that explain previously puzzling clinical challenges. Attachment theory may be a quiet revolution entering mainstream psychoanalytic theory and technique from a non-traditional source of direct observation and scientific validation. The bibliography is worth the price of the book.
