Attachment Theory

Attachment Theory The contributors to this special issue not only have taken on the immense task of reviewing and integrating the burgeoning research literature on attachment, but have also challenged readers to consider the relevance of this literature for the domain of counseling psychology. More specifically, Lopez suggests that attachment theory may be a potential "metaperspective capable of integrating important personality and developmental constructs in ways that both inform and stimulate our research and practice". With this consideration in mind, my comments will focus on the viability of attachment theory as an overarching framework for counseling psychology with particular emphasis on the integrative potential and heuristic value of the theory. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Counseling Psychologist SAGE

Abstract

The contributors to this special issue not only have taken on the immense task of reviewing and integrating the burgeoning research literature on attachment, but have also challenged readers to consider the relevance of this literature for the domain of counseling psychology. More specifically, Lopez suggests that attachment theory may be a potential "metaperspective capable of integrating important personality and developmental constructs in ways that both inform and stimulate our research and practice". With this consideration in mind, my comments will focus on the viability of attachment theory as an overarching framework for counseling psychology with particular emphasis on the integrative potential and heuristic value of the theory.
