Product Description

Review

"I am delighted to see the publication of the Handbook of Attachment. This volume fully represents the continuing development of attachment theory, the proliferation of relevant data collection procedures, and the expansion of applications of the theory. I am particularly gratified--and I know John Bowlby would be as well--by the ways in which the work is being applied in clinical settings. This Handbook is certain to be a rich source of information and ideas for years to come, providing experts with solid reviews of topical areas, and helping newcomers understand what has been accomplished and what remains to be done. Attachment researchers have a great deal to be proud of --and many exciting directions to pursue." --Mary D. Ainsworth, PhD, Professor Emerita, University of Virginia

"Destined to become a classic, this comprehensive volume covers the theoretical, empirical, and clinical aspects of attachment. Superb chapters span the developmental period from infancy through adulthood and address psychological and biological perspectives. The distinguished group of contributors is a veritable 'Who's Who' in the field. This definitive work is essential for anyone interested in developmental psychology and developmental psychopathology. It is an invaluable resource for scholars interested in theory and research on attachment, therapists who work with children and adults, and students of psychology, psychiatry, pediatrics, social work, and related fields." --Dante Cicchetti, PhD, Director, Mt. Hope Family Center, University of Rochester

"John Bowlby must be smiling! Cassidy and Shaver have assembled an inspiring tour de force that provides compelling evidence of the extraordinary intellectual power and breadth of attachment theory. Spanning development, biology, psychopathology, and adult social behavior, this exceptional volume brings together leading contributors to the past decade's explosion of attachment research. Not only does it elegantly summarize the current state of the art, it is also destined to define the agenda for the next generation of research. Your copy is sure to become dog-eared. Anyone studying or working in social and emotional behavior and development should reserve a prominent space on the shelf for this impressive volume." --Harry Reis, PhD, Professor, Department of Clinical and Social Sciences in Psychology, University of Rochester, Rochester, NY

HASH(0xa70057bc) out of 5 stars A great product but................ March 15 2006
By T. Cunningham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a great book. However, it is too clinical and hard to read. Very dry reading. I was looking for some practical tips to use at work. The heading "Handbook" is misleading. To me a handbook is a reference tool that I can go to and get information I can use quickly, practically and the client can understand. I think I wasted my money in this sense. But, it was my choice. Thanks.

HASH(0xa129d148) out of 5 stars Handbook of Attachment April 4 2006
By Melissa A - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
When I ordered this book I thought there was a later version available. Online there are two versions available - this one (1999) and a later one - 2002 or 2003 or even later - I can't remember. It was confusing if the later one was available or if there is even a later one. When I submitted this question to Amazon they basically said that there was no way of determining which book would be sent to me. So it was disappointing when I received the earlier version. I wasn't about to take the time to send it back because I needed to start using it.
