PSYCHOANALYSIS AND ATTACHMENT THEORY

Within the theories of psychoanalysis, attachment theory occupies a unique place. Conceived by Bowlby as an evolutionary given that attachment arises from the need for closeness and protection at times of danger and loss, the concept found few adherents within psychoanalysis. Instead, attachment theory was taken up by psychologist researchers, whose impressive results forced attention among analysts, especially as drive theory waned and relational theories ascended.

Joseph D. Lichtenberg is notable for his work in applying these research results to the clinical situation, for including them in the analytic literature, and for comparing attachment theory to other analytic theories.

In his talk Dr. Lichtenberg will describe the original and expanding research findings and describe how these findings, along with those of contemporary infant research, impact a psychoanalytic theory of development. Most importantly, he will then provide clinical material that presents his way of utilizing attachment theory to help explore the clinical exchange.

THE PRESENTER

APSP is fortunate to have the opportunity to present Joseph D. Lichtenberg, MD, who has integrated concepts from self psychology, developmental theory, and attachment theory in his unique contribution, the highly influential motivational systems theory.

Dr. Lichtenberg, a practicing psychoanalyst, became an early adherent of self psychology. In 1980 he founded the journal, "Psychoanalytic Inquiry," and has remained its Editor-in-Chief. He co-founded the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis in Washington, D.C. and served as its first director. He is the first elected president of the International Council of Psychoanalytic Self Psychology.

Dr. Lichtenberg has published a series of books critiquing developmental theory (Psychoanalysis and Infant Research), postulating a revised basic theory to replace drive theory (Psychoanalysis and Motivation), and further developing the clinical implications of his five motivational systems theory in collaboration with Frank Lachmann and James Fosshage in Self and Motivational Systems and the Clinical Exchange. He is currently co-editing a book applying attachment theory to clinical work.
