The significance of attachment and its relationship to sexuality is crucial in our psychological worlds. This book explores our thinking about the developmental, relational and interpersonal aspects of the links between attachment and sexuality as they emerge in clinical practice. Leading clinicians discuss ways in which attachment and sexuality are experienced and expressed in the therapeutic encounter. The papers are informative and provocative, exploring the subject of attachment and sexuality within contemporary psychoanalytic psychotherapy. In the main paper, Jody Messler Davies presents an object-relational analysis of the particular nature of sexual arousal and satisfaction, and a clinical case vignette is provided to illustrate her theory. Contributors: Jody Messler Davies, Joanna Ryan, Joseph Schwartz, Rachel Wingfield and Judy Yellin

For over ten years The Bowlby Memorial Lecture has provided an opportunity for clinicians and researchers to present work at the leading edge in the field of Attachment Theory and its applications. This year's theme "Touch: Attachment and the Body" was particularly successful in bringing new thinking into these often misunderstood, complex areas of mental health. "In this welcome collection, Kate White has gathered together the presentations from the tenth John Bowlby Memorial Conference so that we can explore issues of the body and the historically taboo subject of touch in psychoanalysis. The authors, all of whom utilize the framework of contemporary attachment theory, challenge the discipline's neglect of touch and move towards a relational conceptualization of bodies and selves-in-relation. Clinical attention is paid to traumatised patients who have been brought up with little experience of loving touch, as well as to the complex difficulties raised when touch enters the consulting room. This collection demonstrates that although the body may have been under-theorised by attachment theorists, it has always been implicit. Touch: Attachment and the Body is a significant and valuable addition to the exploration of the body in contemporary relational psychoanalysis." -- Lewis Aron, Ph.D., Director, New York University, Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis. Co-editor with F. S. Anderson, (1998) of Relational Perspectives on the Body, Hillside NJ: Analytic Press.

As clinicians we want to further our understanding of work with adult clients who have experienced massive and cumulative psychic trauma to which there is no possible adaptive response strategy. This monograph of the 2008 John Bowlby Memorial Conference brings together papers by leading contributors to the field of attachment and trauma that explore the means by which individuals struggle to cope with exposure to war zones, both large scale conflicts and societal breakdown, and the domestic war zones where adults and children experience violence and sexual abuse. These papers seek to further our understanding of the intergenerational transmission of experiences of trauma, as in the examples of the Holocaust and slavery. In times where talk of terror is everywhere, psychotherapists offer a clinical perspective on terror which may translate to the world at large. Papers by Professor Arietta Slade, Shoshi Asheri, Dr. Joseph Schwartz, Adah Sachs, Dick Blackwell and Judith Erskine explore topics such as: experiences of terror states in the consulting room; the multiple survival strategies engaged by people struggling to cope with exposure to relational and environmental war zones; the intergenerational transmission of trauma and terror within an historical and cultural framework; the connection between therapists' own experiences of terror and those of their clients; how therapists may appropriately adapt their approach to include those who have been seen as 'unanalysable'; how the non-verbal aspects of a terrorised person's experience can be safely and effectively worked with therapeutically and the implications for the therapeutic frame and technique; and how we might more adequately provide support and legitimacy within the profession for work 'on the edge'.

This outstanding book is an important collection of papers from the 2013 John Bowlby Memorial Conference by accomplished clinicians from different modalities who share their experience of working with people with different kinds of addiction. The papers bring together an in-depth understanding that addictions are a response to, and hold the pain of, broken attachments and are best treated within healthy interpersonal relationships. For a long time the person with an addiction has been seen as the problem with society being able to live in denial of the causes. These papers open up innovative and effective ways of working with people troubled by addiction from an attachment-informed perspective.Contributors: Cara Crossan, Richard Gill, Lynn Greenwood, Bob Johnson, Liz Karter, Edward Khantzian, Arlene Vetere, Kate White, Jason Wright

This monograph brings together the presentations from the nineteenth John Bowlby Memorial Conference in 2012, organised by The Bowlby Centre. The aim of this was to explore the growing role of the body in relational psychotherapy over the last decade, and to bring us up to date in thinking about the relationship between attachment, the body and trauma. Questions addressed included: How do we anchor the new understandings we are gaining within the framework of attachment? How might the integration of these ideas about the body change what we do in the consulting room? What impact might this have on the therapy relationship? Can we maintain and respect the place of a secure, attuned attachment between therapist and client, and its healing potential, at the centre of our therapeutic work?Pat Ogden's paper "Wisdom of the Body, Lost and Found" was the conference centrepiece and there are contributions from leading clinicians including Roz Carroll, Mark Linington, and Orit Badouk Epstein. Each in their different ways have brought their clinical experiences to life in their presentations and demonstrated this leading edge work in relation to the themes of the body and touch with clients including those so often regarded as "unsuitable for therapy", namely those who have a physical or learning disability or those who have survived extreme trauma through the painful means of psychic protection resulting in dissociative states of mind.Other contributors include Phil Mollon on "Attachment and Energy Psychology" and Nick Totton on "Embodiment and the Social Bond".

The Perpetual Treadmill is a care pathway devised to ensnare the poor within a never ending treatment system for their “own good,” after they have been labelled with their designated malaise. Once caught within it, similar to Kafka’s “Trial” and “Castle,” they are wedged within its corridors where they are forever signposted between services. This book draws on the analogies of “knights” and “knaves” by building on “Bath of Steel” to focus on how this system has been constructed and then maintained. To depict its shortcomings, it has been ranged against a psychologically informed perspective (PSIP) to show how those entrapped can eventually exit the “perpetual treadmill.” But there are numerous vested interests which militate against those clients, duly labelled from ever “emotionally recovering.” The interplay between politicians, bureaucrats, academics, practitioners and clients is explored to detail how the poor have become a raw material which feeds this machine. This book is relevant to psychotherapists, addiction specialists, psychologists, sociologists, criminologists, clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, social policy experts and nurses.

Adolescents with developmental disabilities are a complex population who require specialised treatment and care. This interdisciplinary text examines the processes involved in working with this client group in forensic settings, and explores the ways in which their needs differ from those of other young people who engage in high risk behaviour or offending. The book covers assessment, intervention and treatment options for adolescents with a wide range of developmental disabilities, including autism spectrum disorders, acquired brain injury, developmental traumatology, and complex comorbidities. It describes the obstacles, challenges and opportunities to consider when working with this population, and the role played by various professionals, including forensic psychiatry and psychology, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, education, art psychotherapy and social work. The book also outlines the issues to consider when working in secure and community settings as well as the legal aspects of working with this client group, and the complex issues surrounding risk assessment. The first comprehensive account of forensic issues in adolescents with developmental disabilities, this book will be an indispensible primary resource for a wide range of professionals, including child and adolescent psychiatrists, community psychiatric nurses, developmental paediatricians, social workers and youth workers, lawyers and advocates.

Drawn from the John Bowlby Memorial Conference, the theme of this book addresses the often hidden and ignored subject of attachment, race, and culture. Can our individual narratives in relation to race, culture, and attachment be unmasked in the therapeutic dyad to reveal our human connectedness? The contributors explore how the conscious and unconscious meanings of therapists' and clients' racial and cultural identities shape their dialogue. Clinical accounts show how this emerges for both therapist and client in their work together. Kimberlyn Leary, a relational analyst from Boston, discusses the clinical issues in her chapter "You, Me and Them: On Relating to Race". Farhad Dalal's contribution entitled "Racism: Processes of Detachment, Dehumanisation and Hatred" provides an exploration of the origins and destructiveness of the process of "othering." Other contributors include Barbara Ashton, Cascia Davis, Zack Eleftheriadou, Irris Singer, and Kate White, who relate how their own experiences of difference enable their clinical work.
