The Personality Disorders Through the Lens of Attachment Theory and the Neurobiologic Development of the Self: A Clinical Integration
NEW PAPERBOUND EDITION! The culmination of 40 years of research on the personality disorders, this book documents the breakthrough integration that has brought James Masterson s theory into its fullest possible dimension. Initially descriptive, it evolved into a developmental theory, then into a developmental object relations theory, and, finally, into a developmental self and object relations theory. Now, with the recent emergence of attachment theory and the theory of the neurobiologic development of the self, the picture is complete and a clear and comprehensive statement depicting the origin and development of the personality disorders has taken shape. Dr. Masterson and his fine team of coauthors assembled a rich and comprehensive volume that features discussions of transference and countertransference, consciousness, mother-infant attachment, the psychotherapy of trauma, therapeutic neutrality under challenge, among many other important topics.
