"I have used this volume successfully in a doctoral seminar in counseling. My students found it to be an excellent resource, one that they will keep on their bookshelves for years."--Richard Lanthier, PhD, Graduate School of Education and Human Development, The George Washington University
"The growth of attachment theory and research continues apace. This book is more than just a great help for scholarship and teaching--it has become indispensable. Show me a similar volume in any other field that so artfully integrates work on behavior, cognition, and emotion across such a wide range of ages and contexts! This is exactly what John Bowlby and Mary Ainsworth hoped to set in train."—Everett Waters, PhD, Department of Psychology, Stony Brook University
"This handbook documents the vibrancy and extraordinary breadth of attachment theory. No other theory has such an extensive conceptual span—from biology and lifespan development to emotion, relationships, psychopathology, and interventions. This volume is a 'must read' for graduate students and scholars who want to keep up with attachment theory's explosive run through the human sciences."—Harry Reis, PhD, Department of Clinical and Social Sciences in Psychology, University of Rochester


"Destined to become a classic reference work in the field. This book belongs in the library of professionals and graduate students in developmental and clinical psychology, pediatrics, and psychiatry."—Dante Cicchetti, PhD, McKnight Presidential Chair and Professor, Institute of Child Development and Department of Psychiatry, University of Minnesota


"From its first appearance, the Handbook defied superlatives and instantly established itself as the attachment 'bible,' which no self-respecting child development researcher, couple counselor, or progressive psychotherapist could afford to be without. Stellar contributors combine cutting-edge research findings and penetrating clinical observation. The ever-expanding field of attachment is here comprehensively charted and monitored with awe-inspiring elegance and concision."—Jeremy Holmes, MD, FRCPsych, Professor of Psychological Therapies, University of Exeter, UK

"An essential reference for researchers who focus on attachment, but it also has tremendous relevance for clinicians who are interested in the biological, cognitive, and emotional underpinnings of interpersonal relationships, psychopathology, the process of therapy with different clients, and therapeutic change....The chapter authors are all experts, and many are leading researchers in the areas they review....Cuts across disciplines to discuss a wide range of issues relevant to clinicians, and as the title indicates, attempts to pull out the clinical applications in each area....Very interesting reading for clinicians and researchers who wish to understand theory and empirical research relevant to client conceptualization and treatment." (Behavior Therapist 2010-11-05)

"This excellent book is a comprehensive look at the classic theory of attachment. It masterfully weaves theory and research with clinical practice. If you want to know about attachment, this is the book to have....This new edition is certainly justified. It has been almost 10 years since the publication of the previous edition of this book and the field has advanced, especially in the area of neuroscience and behavioral genetics." (Doody's Review Service 2010-11-05)

"Serves as a readable guide with an abundance of information essential to anyone studying attachment, whether it be to a first time student or a seasoned scholar in the field." (EABP Newsletter 2010-09-26)
