Dr Allan Schore describes his work of ‘Modern Attachment Theory’ and how a secure attachment between mother or primary care giver and child in the first two years is critical for each of us, to give us the best possible chance at life. An insecure attachment, in the extreme, would be those involving abuse and neglect.
