"The authors of this remarkably comprehensive book have propelled forward attachment theory, research, and application. Attachment theory is integrated with evolution, brain development, and neuroscience. Especially important is the research charmingly documenting patterns of attachment in children raised in a remote Mexican village. The assertion that attachment patterns and crucial mother-baby interactions are limited to the culture of western countries is solidly refuted. Further the relevance for the application of attachment findings to pathogenesis, prevention, and therapy is well documented. The authors' relational approach is a valuable read for a full range of readers from students to the experts."-Joseph D. Lichtenberg, Editor-in-Chief of Psychoanalytical Inquiry and the Psychoanalytical Inquiry Book Series. "This is a wonderful, beautifully written, up-to-date summary of current attachment theory and research as it relates to the work of psychoanalytic practitioners. The authors provide exceptionally clear introductions to the most important points of contact between attachment theory and psychodynamic practice, in perfect alignment with the vision of John Bowlby, who would be absolutely delighted to read this excellent volume. It is one of the best summaries available of the fields most relevant to practitioners today."-Peter Fonagy, Freud Memorial Professor of Psychoanalysis, UCL; The Anna Freud Centre, London.
