Arguing for the importance of attachment and emotionality in the developing human consciousness, four prominent analysts explore and refine the concepts of mentalization and affect regulation. Their bold, energetic, and encouraging vision for psychoanalytic treatment combines elements of developmental psychology, attachment theory, and psychoanalytic technique. Drawing extensively on case studies and recent analytic literature to illustrate their ideas, Fonagy. Gergely, Jurist, and Target offer models of psychotherapy practice that can enable the gradual development of mentalization and affect regulation even in patients with long histories of violence or neglect. --- from the publisher

"Stunning in its scope, powerfully reasoned, clinically rich in telling cases, and historically sophisticated. . . .

"This book is already a classic." --Paul Verhaeghe, Professor of Clinical Psychology, Department of Psychoanalysis, University of Ghent, Belgium

"An intellectual and clinical tour de force. This book will have a profound impact on both clinical practice and clinical research." ---Sidney J. Blatt, Professor of Psychiatry and Psychology, Yale University
