The role of attachment, epistemic trust and resilience in personality disorder: a trans-theoretical reformulation

By Peter Fonagy
This issue of DMM News is dedicated to an article by Peter Fonagy, one of the most important contemporary psychoanalysts. Prof. Fonagy is very interested in attachment theory and is the man who focused the attention of researchers and clinicians on the importance of mentalizing. At the 4th IASA Conference in Miami in 2015, he presented a trans-theoretical reformulation of the role of attachment and mentalization in adaptation and in psychopathology, using the DMM perspective. Here in the DMM News, he presents these ideas in print.
