List of Contributors

ATTACHMENT is a most welcome new journal, which promises to be both lively and accessible to practitioners. Theory and practice are joined in case material, poetry and anecdote in which the manifold workings of the attachment system are manifest.
- Judith Lewis Herman, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and Director of Training at the Victims of Violence Program at The Cambridge Hospital, Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Research on attachment theory, without insights offered by clinical practice, risks the progressive loss of its present-time extraordinary impetus. It is therefore foreseeable that a journal like ATTACHMENT will become a must for the researchers, not only for the clinicians it is primarily --and most timely -- addressed to.
-Giovanni Liotti, psychiatrist and psychotherapist, on faculty of APC School of Psychotherapy and in the Post-graduate School of Clinical Psychology of the Salesian University, Rome, Italy.

This new journal fills a still significant gap in the existing, albeit large, volume of literature on attachment theory and research. With an exclusive focus on presenting, discussing and enhancing clinical work inspired by attachment theory and research, this new journal will be of immediate and enduring interest to all those who pursue fresh thinking and feeling in how best to achieve and maintain attachment security, and the resolution of mourning concerning past loss or trauma. This new journal speaks to the heart of all that John Bowlby devoted himself to for "whereas attachment theory was formulated by a clinician for use in diagnosis and treatment of emotionally disturbed patients and families, its usage hitherto has been to promote research in developmental psychology" (Bowlby, 1988, p. ix). In this centenary year since Bowlby's birth, there may be no greater tribute to him than the launch of Attachment: New Directions in Psychotherapy and Relational Psychoanalysis
- Howard Steele, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Psychology, New School for Social Research, New York
