A great deal is known about how infants form attachments, and how these processes carry over into adolescence. But after that, the trail grows cold: the study of adult attachment emphasizes individual variations, paying little attention to the normative mechanisms of adult bonding.

A much-needed corrective, Bases of Adult Attachment examines this under-investigated topic with an eye toward creating a robust theoretical model. The first volume of its kind, its multilevel approach integrates current findings from neuroscience and psychology to analyze the processes by which adult relationships develop, mature, function and dissolve. Here in relevant detail are factors contributing to initial attraction, possible scenarios in the evolution from friendship to attachment and the changes that occur on both sides of a relationship as partners mutually influence each other's behavior, emotions, cognition and even physiology. And expert contributors address long-neglected questions in the field with stimulating topics such as:

The distress-relief dynamic in attachment bonding.An expectancy-value approach to attachment.The biobehavioral legacy of early attachment relationships for adult emotional and interpersonal functioning.How early experiences shape attraction, partner preferences, and attachment dynamics.How mental representations change as attachments form.Insights into the formation of attachment bonds from a social network perspective.

Bases of Adult Attachment will interest scholars approaching adult attachment at multiple levels of analysis (neural, physiological, affective, cognitive and behavioral) and from multiple perspectives. This wide audience includes developmental, social and cognitive psychologists as well as neuroscientists, neuropsychologists, clinicians, sociologists, family researchers and professionals in public health and medicine.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is a strong contribution to the literature on adult attachment. Each chapter is capably written by researchers who fit their work into a larger puzzle, providing new insights, asking probing questions, carefully considering alternative explanations, and providing stimulating directions for future research. Clearly the topic of adult attachment has a rich future, and this volume provides a first-rate look at the current state of the field." (Susan L. O'Donnell, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 60 (32), August, 2015)
