Attachment and New Beginning—Some Links Between the Work of Michael Bálint and John Bowlby

J. R. Pedder

SUMMARY

In Balint's writings on regression and primary object love (1937), (1952), (1968) he frequently speaks of 'an instinct to cling'. This comes close to Bowlby's view (1958), (1969), (1973), (1975) on the instinctual basis of attachment behaviour. Common links between these two areas are explored here. A case is presented which illustrates the relation of disruption of attachment during childhood to depression in adult life and also the new beginning such patients may need in treatment.
