This volume provides a comprehensive multidisciplinary and multinational view of attachment theory as it applies to family systems, and family systems theory as it extends attachment theory. The essays included represent a beginning effort to integrate family systems theory and attachment theory, and to stimulate creative exchanges among scientists and practitioners from family systems and developmental psychology, thus leading to a research agenda including collaborative efforts from both disciplines.
