John Bowlby and attachment theory by Jeremy Holmes( Book )
38 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 776 libraries worldwide
"John Bowlby is one of the outstanding psychological theorists of the twentieth century. This new edition of John Bowlby and Attachment Theory is both a biographical account of Bowlby and his ideas and an up-to-date introduction to contemporary attachment theory and research, now a dominant force in psychology, counselling, psychotherapy and child development. Jeremy Holmes traces the evolution of Bowlby's work from a focus on delinquency, material deprivation and his dissatisfaction with psychoanalysis's imperviousness to empirical science to the emergence of attachment theory as a psychological model in its own right. This new edition traces the explosion of interest, research and new theories generated by Bowlby's followers, including Mary Main's discovery of Disorganised Attachment and development of the Adult Attachment Interview, Mikulincer and Shaver's explorations of attachment in adults and the key contributions of Fonagy, Bateman and Target. The book also examines advances in the biology and neuroscience of attachment.Thoroughly accessible yet academically rigorous, and written by a leading figure in the field, John Bowlby and Attachment Theory is still the perfect introduction to attachment for students of psychology, psychiatry, counselling, social work and nursing"--
Integration in psychotherapy models and methods ( file )
3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 708 libraries worldwide
Psychotherapy is growing and changing rapidly and much of this development is integrative in nature.; Integration in psychotherapy can mean many things from the sequential or simultaneous use of different established techniques, through the adoption of specific hybrid therapies, to the flexibility which is found in the practice of mature clinicians, who often adopt techniques or theory borrowed from other disciplines. This book explores and expounds upon these integrative currents as they impact on the spectrum of contemporary psychological therapy.; In section one, leading practitioners from within traditional models of psychotherapy, self-critically look outwards towards the limits and links between their own approaches and those of others. Section two provides a showcase for the cutting edge new modalities in psychological therapy (Cognitive analytic therapy, Psychodynamic-interpersonal therapy, etc), as well as covering traditional approaches which are inherently integrative. Throughout, the editors and authors strive to maintain a balanced approach, considering the strengths and weaknesses of the integrative stance.; Bateman and Holmes are experts in this field and have been at the forefront of the integrative agenda, they have assembled a group of distinguished chapter authors to help them in their exploration of these issues

Attachment, intimacy, autonomy : using attachment theory in adult psychotherapy by Jeremy Holmes( Book )
4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 204 libraries worldwide
Attachment theory is on the leading edge of a conceptual revolution. It offers a new paradigm that can synthesize into a more coherent whole the best ideas from psychoanalysis, cognitive science, and neurobiology. With its emphasis on relationships, attachment theory is determinedly humanistic, while retaining the scientific vigor of Darwinian ethnology. Attachment theory provides an overall framework for thinking about relationships, or more accurately, about those aspects of relationships that are shaped by threat and the need for security, themes that are central to the work of psychotherap
Healing stories : narrative in psychiatry and psychotherapy ( Book )
3 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 175 libraries worldwide
At the heart of any therapeutic encounter there is always a story. Patients seeking help bring with them stories, spoken or untold, fragmentary and whole, that collectively make up their own personal narrative, their lived autobiography. Whatever else their tasks, a central part of the doctor's or therapist's job is to facilitate the telling of these stories, to make meaning out of them and find the patterns within them. The aim of this book is to rehabilitate stories and story telling within medicine, psychiatry and psychotherapy and to consider a narrative approach both as a theoretical paradigm and a practical, therapeutic

A secure base : parent-child attachment and healthy human development by John Bowlby( Book )
4 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in German and French and held by 49 libraries worldwide
British psychiatrist John Bowlby revolutionized our understanding of human development by scientifically demonstrating that the nature of our early bonds with our parents plays a crucial role throughout our lives. When parents provide a secure emotional base, encouraging their children to seek autonomy while giving them support and encouragement, children grow up psychologically stable and able to make the most of life's opportunities. In this book, Bowlby elaborates these ideas and offers further evidence of the ways in which strong emotional ties promote mental health. -- from Publisher description
The therapeutic imagination : using literature to deepen psychodynamic understanding and enhance empathy by Jeremy Holmes( Book )
3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 48 libraries worldwide
"Use of the imagination is a key aspect of successful psychotherapeutic treatments. Psychotherapy helps clients get in touch with, awaken, and learn to trust their creative inner life, while therapists use their imaginations to mentalise the suffering other and to trace the unconscious stirrings evoked by the intimacy of the consulting room.Working from this premise, in The Therapeutic Imagination Jeremy Holmes argues unashamedly that literate therapists make better therapists. Drawing on psychoanalytic and literary traditions both classical and contemporary, Part I shows how poetry and novels help foster therapists' understanding of their own imagination-in-action, anatomised into five phases: attachment, reverie, logos, action and reflection. Part II uses the contrast between secure and insecure narrative styles in attachment theory and relates these to literary storytelling and the transformational aspects of therapy. Part III uses literary accounts to illuminate the psychiatric conditions of narcissism, anxiety, splitting and bereavement. Based on Forster's motto, 'Only Connect', Part IV argues, with the help of poetic examples, that a psychiatry shorn of psychodynamic creativity is impoverished and fails to serve its patients.Clearly and elegantly written, and drawing on the author's deep knowledge of psychoanalysis and attachment theory and a lifetime of clinical experience, Holmes convincingly links the literary and psychoanalytic canon. The Therapeutic Imagination is a compelling and insightful work that will strike chords for therapists, counsellors, psychoanalysts, psychiatrists and psychologists"--
