Since the 1950s, the study of early attachment and separation has been dominated by a school of psychology that is Euro-American in its theoretical assumptions. Based on ethnographic studies in a range of locales, this book goes beyond prior efforts to critique attachment theory, providing a cross-cultural basis for understanding human development.

One of the major questions of cultural psychology is how to take diversity seriously while acknowledging our shared humanity. This collection, edited by Julia L. Cassaniti and Usha Menon, brings together leading scholars in the field to reconsider that question and explore the complex mechanisms that connect culture and the human mind. The contributors to Universalism without Uniformity offer tools for bridging silos that have historically separated anthropology’s attention to culture and psychology’s interest in universal mental processes. Throughout, they seek to answer intricate yet fundamental questions about why we are motivated to find meaning in everything around us and, in turn, how we constitute the cultural worlds we inhabit through our intentional involvement in them. Laying bare entrenched disciplinary blind spots, this book offers a trove of insights on issues such as morality, emotional functioning, and conceptions of the self across cultures. Filled with impeccable empirical research coupled with broadly applicable theoretical reflections on taking psychological diversity seriously, Universalism without Uniformity breaks new ground in the study of mind and culture.

It is generally acknowledged that attachment relationships are important for infants and young children, but there is little clarity on what exactly constitutes such a relationship. Does it occur between two individuals (infant--mother or infant--father) or in an extended network? In the West, monotropic attachment appears to function as a secure foundation for infants, but is this true in other cultures? This volume offers perspectives from a range of disciplines on these questions. Contributors from psychology, biology, anthropology, evolution, social policy, neuroscience, information systems, and practice describe the latest research on the cultural and evolutionary foundations on children's attachment relationships as well as the implications for education, counseling, and policy. The contributors discuss such issues as the possible functions of attachment, including trust and biopsychological regulation; the evolutionary foundations, if any, of attachment; ways to model attachment using the tools of information science; the neural foundations of attachment; and the influence of cultural attitudes on attachment. Taking an integrative approach, the book embraces the wide cultural variations in attachment relationships in humans and their diversity across nonhuman primates. It proposes research methods for the culturally sensitive study of attachment networks that will lead to culturally sensitive assessments, practices, and social policies.

It has been four decades since the publication of Adrienne Rich’s Of Woman Born but her analysis of maternity and the archetypal Mother remains a powerful critique, as relevant today as it was at the time of writing. It was Rich who first defined the term “motherhood” as referent to a patriarchal institution that was male-defined, male controlled, and oppressive to women. To empower women, Rich proposed the use of the word “mothering”: a word intended to be female-defined. It is between these two ideas—that of a patriarchal history and a feminist future—that the introductory text, Interrogating Motherhood, begins. Ross explores the topic of mothering from the perspective of Western society and encourages students and readers to identify and critique the historical, social, and political contexts in which mothers are understood. By examining popular culture, employment, public policy, poverty, “other” mothers, and mental health, Interrogating Motherhood describes the fluid and shifting nature of the practice of mothering and the complex realities that define contemporary women’s lives.

An updated edition—with a new preface—of the bestselling parenting classic by the author of "BRAINSTORM: The Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain" In Parenting from the Inside Out, child psychiatrist Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., and early childhood expert Mary Hartzell, M.Ed., explore the extent to which our childhood experiences shape the way we parent. Drawing on stunning new findings in neurobiology and attachment research, they explain how interpersonal relationships directly impact the development of the brain, and offer parents a step-by-step approach to forming a deeper understanding of their own life stories, which will help them raise compassionate and resilient children. Born out of a series of parents' workshops that combined Siegel's cutting-edge research on how communication impacts brain development with Hartzell's decades of experience as a child-development specialist and parent educator, this book guides parents through creating the necessary foundations for loving and secure relationships with their children.

'This book will surely be on top of the list for required reading for staff and students across the spectrum of psychological therapists, psychiatrists, sociologists and others. To paraphrase from the book itself, psychotherapy is at its best when it is imaginative, fluid and responsive to a troubled world. Pedder's axiom: "after all there is no such thing as peace time", aptly reflects the continued struggle of the profession to contain its conflicts and desire to fragment. How much better though, to use some of that energy in truly widening access to those most vulnerable in our society. Pure gold (as in psychoanalysis) is a beautiful thing, but of little use if only placed in vaults. An excellent, perceptive and accessible piece of work.'-Professor Diane Waller OBE, Emeritus Professor of Art Psychotherapy, Goldsmiths, University of London, Hon. Visiting Professor, Dept. of Psychological Medicine, Imperial College London 'This collection of written pieces plots the work of an NHS psychotherapist, Jonathan Pedder, turning the science of psychiatry into human encounters. He had a career teaching and inspiring colleagues and students with psychoanalytic ways of thinking, encouraging and supporting them in the challenges of contemporary psychiatry. In his work he made the world of psychoanalysis accessible to non-analysts, and this book augments the textbook on psychotherapy which Pedder wrote with Dennis Brown. Pedder was a quiet visionary influential in offering a pathway for mental health workers from many disciplines to find their way to the psychoanalytic ideas that illuminate their patients/clients.'- Professor R.D. Hinshelwood, Author of Clinical Klein and Dictionary of Kleinian Thought 'The noblest therapist of them all. We all have much to learn from this reticent master of our discipline, and I am sure this book, like its subject, will evoke the admiration, affection, and respect it deserves.'-Jeremy Holmes, Author of John Bowlby and Attachment Theory 'Jonathan Pedder was a passionate and eloquent advocate for psychoanalysis as a necessary component of all the helping professions. He was always ready to endorse eclectic approaches in which psychoanalytic ideas are adapted to clinical and political realities without losing their essential nature. I would wholeheartedly recommend this book to all interested in psychoanalytic practice in the NHS.'-Ronald Doctor, Chair of the Association of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in the NHS (APP) 'Jonathan Pedder's papers are wide-ranging, passionate and sometimes controversial. He works out, in his own unique way, attachment theory ideas about many central topics including the inner drama that needs to be played out on the stage of transference, regression and dependency.'-Michael Brearley, Psychoanalyst, Former Chair of British Psychoanalytical Society The United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) promotes the art and science of psychotherapy and psychotherapeutic counseling for the public benefit. It is a membership organization and holds a national register of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counselors, listing those practitioner members who meet exacting standards and training requirements. It has training and accrediting organizational members covering all the main traditions of psychotherapy. UKCP promotes research and high standards of education, training and practice, as well as the wider provision of psychotherapy and psychotherapeutic counseling for all sections of the public.

Most macroeconomists agree that we live in the age of microfoundations. The recent worldwide financial crisis may have emboldened critics of this microfoundational orthodoxy, but it remains the dominant view that macroeconomic models must go beyond supply and demand functions to the level of individual decision-making, taking into account the general dynamic environment where agents live. Microfoundations Reconsidered seeks to reassess how the relationship of micro and macroeconomics evolved over time. The highly regarded contributors to the book argue that the standard narrative of microfoundations is likely to be unreliable. They therefore re-examine the history of the relationship of microeconomics and macroeconomics, starting from their emergence as self-consciously distinct fields within economics in the early 1930s. They seek to go beyond the conventional history that is often told and written by practicing economists. From different perspectives they challenge the association of microfoundations with Robert Lucas and rational expectations and offer both a more complete and a deeper reading of the relationship between micro and macroeconomics. Microfoundations Reconsidered is a valuable addition to the macroeconomic research literature. It is ideally suited to students, scholars, researchers, and practitioners with an interest in macro and microeconomics and the history of economics.
