Book Details

Reviews and Endorsements

‘A very welcome book on attachment from Ian Rory Owen – a psychotherapist and a prominent author. Owen is pointing us in the fundamental direction of interpersonal relationships and our continuous attachment to others, that is, to our developmental, human condition.’
- Magnus Englander, PhD, Associate Professor of Psychology, Malmö University, Sweden

‘In writing this book, Ian Rory Owen has not only challenged many mainstream fervently held beliefs in this regard, but has also provided case examples that elegantly reveal and effectively deal with the negative existential effects of inadequate attachment experiences in one’s childhood and formative years. Dr Owen’s work is readily accessible to the layperson, owing largely to his eloquent style of writing, even though this work essentially remains a high-level, well-conceptualised and argued text which is highly recommended reading for mental health and social care professionals, as it is sure to illuminate many of their cases.’
- Christopher R. Stones, Professor Emeritus (Psychology), Rhodes University, and former Professor of Psychology, University of Johannesburg
