Allan N. Schore, Ph.D., is on the clinical faculty of the University of California at Los Angeles David Geffen School of Medicine. He is author of numerous volumes, articles, and chapters, reviewer or on the editorial staff of more than 45 journals in various scientific and clinical fields, and has been in private psychotherapy practice for over four decades.
'Allan N. Schore reveals himself as a polymath, the depth and breadth of whose reading, bringing together neurobiology, developmental neurochemistry, behavioral neurology, evolutionary biology, developmental psychology, developmental psychoanalysis and infant psychiatry is staggering. This is a superb integrative work, an excellent source book for psychiatrists wishing to locate their work within the much broader study of the mind. It might also form the basis of what could be an enormously creative dialogue between neurobiology and psychoanalysis.' - British Journal of Psychiatry
'...Allan N. Schore['s]...work is leading to an integrated evidence-based dynamic theory of human development that will engender a rapprochement between psychiatry and neural sciences.' - American Journal of Psychiatry
'Schore's...model explicates in exemplary detail the precise mechanisms by which the infant brain might internalize and structuralize the affect-regulating functions of the mother, in circumscribed neural tissues, at specifiable points in its epigenetic history.... I unreservedly recommend this uniquely informative book to psychoanalytic readers.' - Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association
'In this extensively researched (over 2,300 references!) and cogently argued text, Allan N. Schore provides a major contribution to the study of the relationship between the neurological processes and structures of the brain and the socioaffective and object representational phenomena that we generally associate with the mind. Schore's approach is an outstanding example of the genre of studies seeking to demonstrate neurological isomorphisms for the kind of mental or psychic states that have been postulated by psychoanalytic theory.' - Psychoanalytic Quarterly
'For those who read this book, the study of human development will be entirely transformed. Not only is this book destined to be an authoritative reference for those who work with infants and children, but it also promises to radically restructure any of our current paradigms of infant/child development and care.' - Contemporary Education
'Allan N. Schore's Affect Regulation and the Origin of the Self is a brilliant, if not awesome, synthesis with supporting data from a spectrum of many disparate sources, including anatomic, developmental, neurochemical and psychodynamic. He has developed a coherent and integrated neuropsychological model of the location, development, and mechanism of the self.' - International Society for the Study of Subtle Energies and Energy Medicine
