Although attachment theory was originally rooted in psychoanalysis, theory and research in each area have developed quite independently. This incisive book explores ways in which attachment theory and psychoanalysis have each contributed to understanding key aspects of human behavior--including infantile and adult sexuality, aggression, psychopathology, and psychotherapeutic change--and what the two fields can learn from each other. Morris Eagle critically evaluates how psychoanalytic thinking can aid in expanding core attachment concepts, such as the internal working model, and how knowledge about attachment can inform clinical practice and enrich psychoanalytic theory building.

Reviews:

"This is the best and most systematic integration to date of these two bodies of theory, research, and clinical wisdom. Eagle is a foremost commentator on the evolution of psychoanalytic thinking. In this book, he provides a very welcome, mature, balanced, and fruitful bringing together of two traditions that have been separated for too long."--Peter Fonagy, PhD, FBA, Freud Memorial Professor of Psychoanalysis and Chair, Department of Clinical, Educational and Health Psychology, University College London, United Kingdom

"Eagle has the rare combination of a scientist's mind and a clinician's heart. His exceptionally lucid exploration of commonalities, disparities, and unresolved questions between the literatures on psychoanalysis and attachment is a 'must read.' This is an ideal text for advanced students in clinical training. It also deserves the attention of practicing therapists, empirical investigators, and anyone interested in individual psychology, sexuality, aggression, security, and the mitigation of suffering."--Nancy McWilliams, PhD, Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey
