15th John Bowlby Memorial Conference - 2008 Monograph

‘Judy Yellin and Orit Badouk Epstein have brought together a slim volume that packs a mighty punch. Readers are given access to prime clinical, social, and political reflections on the role of fear within and between people, how to manage terrifying emotions, and promote individual and social change. There is a deep and enriching experience for all who engage with this important book.’

‘Clinicians speak of anxiety, but seldom of fear and even less often of terror – topics that are so raw and nerve-shattering that we recoil from contemplating them deeply. Yet the authors and editors in this book courageously look fear and terror in the face and encourage others to do so as well – on behalf of our own unprocessed terror, that of patients we see, and of the world in which we live. While it is well known that fear of separation and loss triggers the attachment system, putting fear – much less terror – in the spotlight strains the emotional capacities of even the most secure therapists. This book encourages us to look “within and without”, to share the fear states and terror states of our patients and clients as a means for co-creating a new reality with room for hope and trusting connection. A profound, moving, and much-needed book on the most painful of human and clinical experiences.’
