Becoming attached: First relationships and how they shape our capacity to love – Robert Karen
The struggle to understand the infant-parent bond ranks as one of the great quests of modern psychology, one that touches us deeply because it holds so many clues to how we become who we are.
How are our personalities formed? How do our early struggles with our parents reappear in the way we relate to others as adults?

In Becoming Attached, psychologist and noted journalist Robert Karen offers fresh insight into some of the most fundamental and fascinating questions of emotional life. (Amazon.com)
