Structuralization, Trauma, and Attachment

Jon Mills, PsyD, Ph.D., CPsych

Attachment pathology results in deficit unconscious organizational processes within self-structure that predispose patients toward developing character disorders with many overdetermined, polysymptomatic profiles. The nature of developmental trauma on attachment capacities and corresponding emergent structuralization processes is intimately associated with a broad array of clinical presentations that are largely organized on borderline levels of functioning. The author addresses the question of trauma and structuralization and presents various case illustrations gathered from clinical observations. By examining various subgroups of structural pathology, the author hopes to advance knowledge of attachment-related disorders.
