Example text

Indeed not one word was changed by the copy editor in what turned out to be 700 pages, including 105 pages of 2,500 references. In essence Affect Regulation and the Origin of the Self was an argument for the power of integrating the psychological and the biological, the scientific and the clinical. The opening paragraph was written in a somewhat confident, inaugural tone: “The understanding of early development is one of the fundamental objectives of science. ” I remember knowing that the book was about 10 years ahead of the field, some parts 20 years or more, especially in terms of scientific research.

A triad of fundamental assumptions underlies this work on the neurobiology of emotional development—that the compelling questions of human emotion and motivation can only be understood in terms of structure–function relationships, that the primordial conditions in which these evolve occur in the context of the caregiver–infant interaction, and that an understanding of the principles of human developmental psychobiology is a prerequisite and powerful impetus to the elucidation of the dynamic mechanisms of all later socioemotional phenomena.

A powerful impetus towards an integrated multilevel approach has come from recent studies which demonstrate that the early transactions with the social environment are “hidden” within the dyadic relations between mother and child, and that in this dialectic the mother acts as a crucial regulator of the child’s development. The characterization of these hidden processes is now a major focus of study, since it has been demonstrated that not only the infant’s overt behavior but its covert physiology and thereby its internal state are directly regulated by the mother.
