Beebe, Cohen, and Lachmann: The Mother-Infant Interaction Picture Book: Origins of Attachment (W. Winograd)

Review by:
Wendy Winograd

The Mother-Infant Interaction Picture Book is a wonderful example of engaged scholarship—bringing the results of highly technical research to those who can best make use of it. After years of study, in plain and direct language, Beebe and her colleagues reach out to a wide audience that includes clinicians, parents, and any others who have an interest in infant development and the significance of caregiver-infant interaction. In an experience near style of writing, the authors bring the readers right into the research lab allowing us to feel the mothers’ joys, anxieties, and dreams and the infants’ laughter, hope, and distress.

In many ways, the book is a product of recent psychoanalytic times. With their emphasis on the significance of relationships in giving rise to identity and their attention to the way in which mothers and infants co-regulate emotional states, the authors situate themselves in the relational school and within attachment theory.
