Abstract

"There is bad blood between psychoanalysis and attachment theory. As with many family feuds, it is hard to identify where the problem began. (Fonagy, 2001, p.1)" Thus began an attempt, Attachment Theory and Psychoanalysis, written 15 years ago, to trace the relationship between attachment and psychoanalysis, disentangle conceptual similarities and differences, and point to areas of convergence that were then emerging in the field. Here, we will attempt a conceptual progress report on how thinking has moved on since that time, with a particular emphasis on the latest developments in the theory of mentalizing as one of the current strands of thought with a bearing on the intellectual rapprochement between attachment and psychoanalysis; we find that there are new kinds of difficulties facing the field which require a reconsideration of where future directions may lie – for both attachment and psychoanalysis.
