Summary
  • "Mother-Infant Attachment and Psychoanalysis argues that shame can develop during the first six months of life through an unreflecting look in the mother's eyes, and that this shame is internalized by the infant and reverberates through its later life. Mary Ayers further expands on this concept of the look through a powerful and extensive study of the concept of the Evil Eye, an enduring universal belief that eyes have the power to inflict injury. Ways of healing shame within a clinical setting are explored and a fascinating analysis of the role of eye contact in the therapeutic encounter is examined." "Mother-Infant Attachment and Psychoanalysis brings together a unique blend of theoretical interpretations of shame with clinical studies, and integrates major concepts from psychoanalysis, Jungian analysis, developmental psychology and anthropology. The result is a broad understanding of shame and a real comprehension of why it may underlie a wide range of clinical disorders."
  • "Jungian analysts, psychoanalysts, and psychotherapists as well as all those interested in object relations and early emotional development will profit greatly from the theoretical and clinical analysis offered in this book."--BOOK JACKET
