Treating Attachment Pathology. By Jon Mills. Oxford, United Kingdom: Jason Aronson, 2005. 366 pp.

Review by:
Henry J. Friedman

Jon Mills, to quote this book's cover, is a “psychologist, philosopher, and psychoanalyst in private practice in Ajax, Ontario, Canada.” As an experienced psychoanalyst, he has written a book that attempts to convey his work with patients suffering from what he calls attachment pathology. While his primary aim in this volume is to place emphasis on the role of attachment disorders in the patients he treats, it is also an opportunity for him to elucidate, in considerable detail, what he has found to be of value in the application of a variety of psychoanalytic theories in the course of their treatment. While some of these theories are difficult if not impossible to integrate with each other, he nevertheless utilizes all of them, shifting effortlessly from one theoretical system to another, ignoring even the insurmountable gap between Kohut and Lacan.
