Sample text

As the reader will see, the upcoming chapters describe developmental changes not just in emerging psychological function but also in biological structure, especially during early critical periods that evolve over the stages of infancy. This book was the first to shift emphasis from cognitive to emotional and social development. The image on the cover, a mother gazing at her infant, visually expressed the relational nature of early development, as well as drew attention to both the mother’s and baby’s subjectivities, even more so than behavior.

As a result of Dr. Schore’s contribution we now have many more overarching bridges between neurobiological psychiatry and psychoanalytic psychology that are “user-friendly” and “user-relevant” for psychotherapists. One immediately thinks of developmental psychopathology, insecure attachments and their neuro-psychological consequences, affect dysregulation, the onset of personality disorders, and vulnerability to somatization disorders. Developmental psychopathology, which is rapidly becoming a field unto itself, can certainly be understood in no small measure by the concept of the “failed appointment,” that is, failure, whether by chance, trauma, neglect, or inherent genetic programming, for the key neuronal connections to have been evoked at the proper time by the mother-as-appropriate-selfobject at the appropriate time.
