"One would be hard pressed to find another book so extensively filled with an up-to date and extensive review of contemporary studies on the affective and neuroscience literature related to psychotherapy and psychoanalysis as this. This work will likely be a major reference source for those interested in understanding the brain-mind body relationships, particularly in the two-person model, focused on the dissociative process, and the autonomic nervous system concomitants."

"[S]chore's contribution continues to be invaluable. He voraciously digests the hard science on our behalf, and shows us over and over again that the evidence is there, and that this really matters. " – Therapy Today
This book provides a fascinating integration between the clinical and the neuroscientific and as such advances the necessary, promising and vital dialogue between the two.

Allan Schore’s classic volume has radically transformed our psychoanalytic understanding of psychological disorder. Incredibly, this book has achieved the same for our understanding of the psychotherapeutic process. Even more remarkable, it is filled with underlying practical implications of how we work, could work or even should work psychotherapeutically, given our new understanding of the brain. Schore has provided a wonderful window for the psychotherapist to look at neuroscience and go back to the consulting room more enlightened, more confident and above all more competent.

Schore's new book, Affect Dysregulation and Disorders of the Self, provides the much-needed understanding on how the growth of brain and self are intertwined within the context of relationships. His magnificent integration of research on attachment and developmental neuroscience demonstrates how we fundamentally mature and thrive in pairs and groups. Disruptions of those relationships disturb the basic biological processes necessary for managing our relationships to others and ourselves. In this book Schore unravels how these processes are interwoven and guides us towards developing corrective interventions at various stages of development.

This is a superb integrative work, and excellent source book for psychiatrists wishing to locate their work within the much broader study of the mind. It might also form the basis of what could be an enormously creative dialogue between neurobiology and psychoanalysis.
