From its origins in the 1950s with the work of John Bowlby and Mary Ainsworth, Attachment Theory has expanded over the ensuing half century to become a central psychobiological paradigm in developmental and clinical psychology. Carefully compiled by an editorial partnership which spans both sides of the Atlantic, this new six-volume major work seeks to bring together for the first time important original papers on the subject of Attachment, making it an invaluable resource for all mental health professionals, from psychology, medicine, psychiatry, nursing, counselling, and all modalities of psychotherapy. Opening with a newly-written introductory chapter which aims to provide a contextualising map of the field, the set is carefully divided into twenty sections split over six volumes, covering a broad range of key aspects on Attachment Theory.

"This compilation of scholarly articles on the Attachment Theory will certainly interest mental health professionals in Asia. The wealth of information can assist them in their clinical work as they grapple with psychological issues in their busy clinics. All the authors in the book are from both sides of the Atlantic and I am sure the editors are cognizant that the 21st century is the Pacific Century and will be thinking about a Chinese edition with views from Asian psychotherapists about the Attachment Theory."
Professor EE-Heok Kwa, National University of Singapore
"This work is an absolute tour de force. It is the most comprehensive (indeed the definitive) account of attachment theory, science and practice. It includes an immensely valuable analysis of the ethological and psychoanalytical origins and this movement, which has had such an immense impact on the mental health sciences of our time, and of all the successive stages in and aspects of its development. The six volumes cover absolutely everything, from infant and child work to adult psychiatry, from mentalization to affect regulation and beyond. Its introduction to the currently unfolding vistas in the neuroscience of attachment is particularly exciting. Surely this is a via regia to the best possible psychiatry of the future - a psychiatry which is simultaneously psychological and biological, both clinical and empirical, humane and rigourous."
Professor Mark Solms , University of Cape Town and Co-Chair of the International Neuropsychoanalysis Society
"This six-volume collection provides a bird-eye view of "Attachment Theory", a key concept of developmental psychology and psychiatry. Starting from selected articles of the pioneer John Bowlby, it describes the impact as well as the critiques of the original work, and covers all areas of diverse extension of this theory. This 21st- century look at Attachment theory also points to important remaining questions of this field, and is highly recommended to the next generations of clinicians, psychologists and neuroscience researchers."
Kumi O Kuroda, MD PhD, RIKEN Brain Science Institute, Japan
“This is a wonderful and long-awaited piece of work. The coverage is tremendously comprehensive, feeding perfectly the needs both of scholars and practitioners, and I am sure it will become an indispensable resource for on Attachment Theory, a must-know area nowadays for everybody practicing in the field of mental health and psychotherapy. I wholeheartedly recommend this work to every mental health professional, both East and West.”(Dr. Teresa Chan 2013-07-11)
“China is a highly populated country in which family relationships and values are central. Attachment Theory provides a theoretical and therapeutic framework for thinking about family strengths and weaknesses, and how to help when trauma or mental illness strikes. It provides an invaluable new framework for psychologists, psychiatrists and other mental health professional in China. The study of attachment theory will also itself be enriched by encountering Chinese culture, making this collection invaluable to researchers both at home and abroad.”(Yunping Yang 2013-07-11)
"Like no other resource, this series provides an invaluable compilation of scientific-theoretical studies on "Attachment Theory", that will definitely be used as a secure base for many researchers worldwide and from which a great exploration from its origins to the most recent developments can be made. With this state of the art researchers from other regions, such as Latin America, can begin to pave the way for the consolidation of the emerging and promising work in this area."(Rodrigo A.
