Reviews and Endorsements

'This is the best introduction to neuroscience for psychodynamic psychotherapists available today. It is sophisticated, comprehensive, up-to-date and at many points inspirational. It is accessible but never at the expense of oversimplification. It is highly informative, eschews speculation and is unusually clear in highlighting continuing gaps in our knowledge. This is an immensely valuable addition to all our libraries and is an ideal text for psychological therapists wishing to understand more about the revolution of knowledge that has taken place in neuroscience.'
- Professor Peter Fonagy, University College London

'In the last few decades the study of the brain and nervous system and its relationship to psychology has accelerated at a furious pace. The amount we have learned in those few years is greater than the sum of what was learned in all of the centuries prior. This exploding body of knowledge has led to a growing library on the relevance of neuroscience to psychological trauma and attachment. Unique among these books is Susan Hart's Brain, Attachment, Personality. Hart has brought a fresh and particularly grounded view to the surprisingly young field of attachment and neuroscience, enlightening the reader to the cutting edge and overlaps of both disciplines. At the book's core, Hart takes on complicated theories and explains them with clarity while exposing varying views of critical controversies.'
