"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
From the Back Cover
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.
