Disorganized attachment and dissociation: new horizons in etiology, prevention, and treatment

1 January 2015


Attachment is one of the most widely accepted, research supported theories in the field of psychology. Advances in neuroscience and neurophysiology research are expanding the evidence base for attachment while unveiling past mysteries and bringing to light new directions for inquiry. A particularly exciting horizon in this discussion is the convergence of attachment, dissociation, and interpersonal neurobiology. This paper provides an overview of the state of the literature and proposes interventions for the prevention and treatment of pathological dissociation.
