Affect Regulation and The Repair of the Self

Affect Regulation and The Repair of the Self

By Allan N Schore
Review by Milton Richlin, PhD

Spring 2005 - Volume 9 Number 2

In this most recent volume in his series, Allan Schore of the University of California at Los Angeles describes an extensive body of research and clinical observations supporting the idea that early development of the brain's right hemisphere plays a critical role in an infant's attachment to its primary caregiver. During the first three years of life, the centers in the prefrontal cortex of the infant's right hemisphere respond to the interaction with the mother's emotions in guiding the infant's own emotional development.
