In this collection of lectures Dr Bowlby describes recent findings, and gives an outline of the main features of attachment theory, now widely recognised as a most productive conceptual framework within which to organise the evidence. In the final lecture he shows how this knowledge, when applied to analytically oriented psychotherapy, helps both to clarify the aims of therapy and to guide the therapist in his or her own work.

This collection will be welcomed by students as a lucid introduction to the field, by professionals who are still unfamiliar with recent developments, as well as by those eager to extend their existing knowledge.
