This succinct and highly readable book from one of Palgrave's best-selling authors offers the perfect introduction to a fascinating and fast-growing field. It explains the key concepts in attachment theory and describes how the main attachment types play out both in childhood and later life. It identifies some of the intriguing questions being explored by research, such as: 'What part do individuals' attachment histories play in adult relationships?' and 'What scope is there for attachment styles established in infancy to change later in life?'

Students and professionals alike from across the fields of psychology, counselling, health and social work will find this an illuminating and thought-provoking guide to the rich complexity of human behaviour.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The book is brief but very rich. You very rarely see a child with particular attachment characteristics growing up. Not so here: the child grows up both across and within chapters. Quite honestly, I cannot remember coming across such a sharp integration of the adult social psychology and the developmental psychology perspectives.' - Professor Peter Fonagy, Freud Memorial Professor of Psychoanalysis, University College London '...Attachment across the lifecourse is strong: clear and engaging without being simplistic and would, in my opinion, suit well the needs of a readership requiring such a book. Students on social work training courses come to mind, as do those wanting to refresh their knowledge of the attachment field.' - Philip John Archard, Journal of Social Work Practice.
