Author(s): Allan N. Schore
In 1994 Allan Schore published his groundbreaking book, Affect Regulation and the Origin of the Self, in which he integrated a large number of experimental and clinical studies from both the psychological and biological disciplines in order to construct an overarching model of social and emotional development. Since then he has expanded his regulation theory in more than two dozen articles and essays covering multiple disciplines, including neuroscience, psychiatry, psychoanalysis, developmental psychology, attachment, and trauma. These two volumes (Affect Regulation and Repair of the Self and Affect Dysregulation and Disorders of the Self) are the first presentation of his comprehensive theory in book form as it has developed since 1994.
