Origins of attachment theory book
Attachment theory, as first developed by John Bowlby, is at the very heart of this book. It is to John Bowlby that I owe the nascent ideas that led me to develop an integration of three psychoanalytic theories (described in Chapter Eleven) which, when employed in concert, I believe to be more effective in enabling the healing process of my clients to take place than if one employs a single theoretical model. I undertook to write this book in order to share with a wider audience of practising psychotherapists and counsellors this integrative approach to psychotherapy. I hope that it may encourage further debate that will lead to further development.
