Editorial Reviews

Review

“Schore weaves together, in a seemingly effortless fashion, left and right, science and art, head and heart, and theory and practice, managing somehow to make tremendously complex subject matter at once accessible, compelling, and clinically useful. So settle in, savor every morsel, enjoy every moment, engage both sides of your brain―and you will be richly rewarded for your efforts. . . . [A] must-read for health professionals and interested lay persons alike.

- Psychoanalytic Psychology

“Dr. Schore has been a pioneer in writing about integrative neurobiological models of development . . . . [T]he text is of great value to anyone interested in the theoretical basis underlying attachment and affect regulation. Of particular interest to psychotherapists is that the book explores how psychotherapists’ neurobiology may be altered as a function of the practice of psychotherapy. . . . [O]f value to teachers who want to integrate important findings about current neuroscience into psychotherapy training. Any clinician who believes in the centrality of developmental processes regarding the understanding of adult patients will be riveted by the descriptions of the interdisciplinary data that support our theories of attachment and emotion regulation. . . . I recommend that all psychiatrists become conversant with Dr. Shore’s work.

- Journal of Clinical Psychiatry

“One would be hard pressed to find another book so extensively filled with an up-to-date and extensive review of contemporary studies on the affective and neuroscience literature related to psychotherapy and psychoanalysis as this. This work will likely be a major reference source for those interested in understanding the brain-mind-body relationships, particularly in the two-person model, focused on the dissociative process, and the autonomic nervous system concomitants.”
- Journal of Analytical Psychology

“I would recommend The Science of the Art of Psychotherapy to child psychiatry/psychology fellows, psychoanalysts, family therapists, . . . neuroscience majors, psychology students at all levels of training, and any student of attachment therapy.

- Journal of Psychiatric Practice

“[S]chore's contribution continues to be invaluable. He voraciously digests the hard science on our behalf, and shows us over and over again that the evidence is there, and that this really matters.

- Therapy Today

“Geared towards psychotherapists and scientists, this collection of the latest applicable research and advances in clinical practice creates an enriching centrality between these two realms in the mental health profession.

- Somatic Psychotherapy Today

“Readers familiar with Schore’s previous work will recognize his rigorous and wide-ranging scholarship. This book, like its predecessors, is a thoroughly researched, extensively referenced integration of varied literatures. . . . [T]his is a foundational book, providing a scientific and theoretical basis for scholars and researchers in modern attachment theory, affective neuroscience, and neuropsychiatry.

About the Author

Allan N. Schore, PhD, is on the clinical faculty of the Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine, and at the UCLA Center for Culture, Brain, and Development. He is the recipient of the American Psychological Association Division 56: Trauma Psychology "Award for Outstanding Contributions to Practice in Trauma Psychology" and APA's Division 39: Psychoanalysis "Scientific Award in Recognition of Outstanding Contributions to Research, Theory and Practice of Neuroscience and Psychoanalysis."He is also an honorary member of the American Psychoanalytic Association. He is author of three seminal volumes, Affect Regulation and the Origin of the Self, Affect Dysregulation and Disorders of the Self and Affect Regulation and the Repair of the Self, as well as numerous articles and chapters. His Regulation Theory, grounded in developmental neuroscience and developmental psychoanalysis, focuses on the origin, psychopathogenesis, and psychotherapeutic treatment of the early forming subjective implicit self. His contributions appear in multiple disciplines, including developmental neuroscience, psychiatry, psychoanalysis, developmental psychology, attachment theory, trauma studies, behavioral biology, clinical psychology, and clinical social work. His groundbreaking integration of neuroscience with attachment theory has lead to his description as "the American Bowlby" and with psychoanalysis as "the world's leading expert in neuropsychoanalysis." His books have been translated into several languages, including Italian, French, German, and Turkish.
