This volume, enhances our ability to understand our clients by elucidating attachment theory and its relationship to psychopathology and the major personality assessment instruments in current use. The book begins with a concise and readable synopsis of Bowlby’s attachment theory and a summary of the research relating attachment status to psychopathology. Next, it examines the two major methods assessing attachment status, the Adult Attachment Interview (AAI) and the Adult Attachment Projective (AAP) . Then, the authors review the two most widely used personality assessment instruments-the MMPI/MMPI-2 and the Rorschach ink blots (as scored and interpreted by Exner’s Comprehensive system)- and discuss how these tests relate to the concepts of attachment. The latter third of the book consists of five case studies in which the authors illuminate the lives of clients from different clinical settings
