Adult Attachment Theory, Research, and Clinical Implications by W. Steven Rholes

With contributions from leading investigators, this volume presents important theoretical and empirical advances in the study of adult attachment. Chapters take stock of the state of knowledge in the field and introduce new, testable theoretical models to guide future research. Major topics covered include stability and change of attachment orientations across the lifespan; influences of attachment on cognitive functioning; and implications for the ways individuals experience intimacy, conflict, caregiving, and satisfaction in adult relationships. Also explored are the ways attachment theory and research can inform therapy with couples and can further understanding of such significant clinical problems as PTSD and depression.


'Exceptional and important... Many of the field's major theoreticians and researchers have been assembled to offer sophisticated presentations of their state-of-the-art work. The editors and contributors are to be commended for producing a superb volume that is both broad and rich - the perfect text for a graduate course in contemporary attachment theory and research.' - Kenneth N. Levy, PhD, Pennsylvania State University, USA 'A cutting-edge treatment of one of the most vibrant and important domains in psychology. Fascinating, clear, comprehensive, and beautifully edited, this book is required reading for psychologists who want to know where adult attachment theory has been and where it is going, or who simply want to know more about the nature of human intimacy.' - Garth Fletcher, PhD, University of Canterbury, New Zealand 'Along with providing comprehensive reviews of the literature across many attachment-related topics, this book directly confronts a number of long-standing issues in the field. These include the validity of self-reports; change and stability in attachment security; explicit versus implicit working models; and general versus relationship-specific attachment. Dealing with attachment issues in therapy is also an important focus. A 'must read. - Pat Noller, PhD, University of Queensland, Australia (Emeritus)'
