To explain and understand the patterns that attachment play in psychiatric and social problems a body of knowledge has sprung up which owes much to the pioneering work of the late John Bowlby. This book draws together recent theoretical contributions, research findings and clinical data from psychiatrists, psychologists, sociologists and ethologists from Britain, America and Europe.

'Contains much material of particular interest to those working with the bereaved … a fascinating insight into the origins and development of attachment theory … Counsellors will find much of value.' - Bereavement Care
